Though not in the same league as other multi-purpose chairs listed here, The Stooler wins a place for sheer innovation. Rather than being a chair that can turns into other things, it is something that can turn anything into a chair.
Though The Stooler can literally transform anything, from a ball to a pile of papers to a bale of hay into a functional chair, it’s not guaranteed that it will actually be comfy. The Stooler is the type of thing you want packed away in your camping gear so you can knock up a canny little seat with whatever is lying around. Read More…
Less Armchair by Attila Jónás pushes the boundaries of product design, It is a minimalist furniture that was born from several issues.
What is the design or art, what is beautiful and what is ugly, how far we can go, what do we call, a well-designed product? If something is simple , is it beautiful as well? Why? If less is more, a little is much? How does the simplest armchair look like?
This one’s for the hoarders; the adaptable design by Stephen Schulz allows for users to fill in the gaps with whatever they wish. Choose colourful fabrics and cushions, cuddly toys, or the entire contents of your desk draws. The idea behind the chair was to hand over design flexibility to the owner and to give them a chance to make their own mark on it by filling the gaps with whatever takes their fancy. The designers suggest using fully recycled and upcycled goods to retain the eco-friendly ethos.
