If you’re a slave to your desk like me, you know what it’s like to daydream about getting a little exercise during the week and will appreciate this design. Introducing Fitness@Work- the perfect chair for keeping your blood flowing throughout the workday! For those big guns a central mainspring/handle combo is built into the core of the chair for a great arm resistance workout. Need to work on those 6 pack abs? Lean the seat-back to the floor, tuck your feet behind the stabilizers and…you get the idea. Neeeeed this!

Designer: Benjamin Cselley

This Log Chop Bench is a one-off piece defined by one very unconventional process (to say the least). Designers David Long & Antoine Morris avoided concrete blueprints & lent their ax, log, & minimal sketches to a professional Lumberjill (you heard me) who carved out seat spaces with surgical precision. The rough hollows were then clad in fine, hand-sewn upholstery by a motorcycle saddle maker. A little unorthodox, but pretty damn sexy.

The bench was recently auctioned at the Stellar Living 2011 Contemporary Art & Design Auction for Mercer Union in Toronto, Ontario.

Even though it’s back has been severed and three of it’s legs have been slashed, this design is still standing pretty. It’s called the Cut Chair, and it’s is the latest victim of designer Peter Bristol’s wonderfully twisted imagination. A reinforced beam anchored to a plate beneath the rug stabilizes the cantilevered seat while three cleverly placed dismembered legs give the illusion that the chair has just been magically sliced apart. A story-inspiring and striking design.

I’m not so keen on the Pull & Pushi’s design but the idea that a chair can be pulled out of smaller chair to give you a wider chair and side table is intriguing. It’s a great space saving idea and continues to explore compact furniture with multiple functions and dare I say, personalities?

As you reading about this project are more than likely human, you know how important it can be to have a nice seat to sit upon. It is because of this, and because a chair can be so simple that it’s one of the central bits of industrial design in any designer’s schooling. It is the primary challenge of any Bauhaus student in Germany to create a perfect or otherwise innovative chair. The project we’re about to look at here is not from the Bauhaus, no, in fact it’s just about as far away in form from a Bauhaus chair as a designer has ever gotten.

This is “Purposefulness of Shadow,” a seat that employs not only it’s own basic form, but the form of the shadow it has the potential to cast as well. It is in this space between the chair and its shadow that the seated person can place all of their otherwise carried items. Optical illusion made useful. Well played.

Designer: John Leung

Besides being editor of YD, I’m also a unicorn herder and recent crowned King of the Cephalopods, but a king ain’t a king without a throne. In 2010 a minion of mine by the name of Maximo Riera cast a series of chairs inspired by different species called The Animal Chairs – one of which is a black octopus. It’s over-the-top and beautifully executed. In fact, it was the most time consuming and production intensive from the series. Now that I have a proper throne, BOW TO YOUR OVERLORD.
