Sometimes you feel like a chair… sometimes you don’t… I love options. Especially when it comes to home furnishings. Indecision is the key to flexibility vis-à-vis the arranging and rearranging of a room. Things evolve as your needs change. At least that’s how it should be.
Which is what makes this design so perfect.
From Joel Hesselgren, the designer who brought us salt and pepper shakers made from old Legos, comes the amazing table chair – two modern, great looking chairs that become a table simply by pushing them together and sliding one into the other via specially designed notches. As chairs, it seats two; as a coffee table it seats four to six. How many pieces of furniture can you say that about?
It’s a cool new way of mixing and matching. The same way you don’t want to be locked into a room, you don’t want to be locked into a design. Unless, of course, you can unlock it and turn it back into seating.
This design seems to only be a concept, but if they go into full production, we would encourage them to go “GREEN” when picking at the materials to construct this cool useful design.
