Chairless was designed for furniture brand Vitra by Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena, and unveiled recently at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan.
Chairless is a simple tool for sitting – a textile strap joined into a loop, measuring 85 cm in length and 5 cm in width, which can be wrapped around the back and knees in order to stabilise the body and relieve tension, while in a seated position. Chairless is mobile. Weighing less than 85 grams, the strap can be folded into a compact size allowing it to fit easily into a pocket – the ideal sitting aid while out and about.
I think this is a brilliantly simple innovation and would probably make sitting in the park a lot more comfortable.
