Keer Chair by Reinier de Jong

Reinier de Jong‘s KEER can be a lounger of 2 different heights or a stool, or even combined to form a sofa or bench. Each lightweight polyethylene piece is 20cm (8″) wide and can be connected to another by built-in magnets so the width options of KEER are infinite.

Update
In a comment on the Dezeen blog there was a link to the Kiesler Chair on Retro to go pointing out there were design similarities.
Reinier had asked me eons ago to feature this chair, but I remembered also reading somewhere there are similarities with an other design.

Ah and I found the comment. It’s about Friedrich Kiesler:

not quite original, friedrich kiesler designed this concept already in 1942, for peggy guggenheim’s gallery in ny. http://www.kiesler.org/cms/index.php?lang=3&idcat=30 February 17th, 2008 at 9:51 pm

Another commenter there pointed to the one MoMa has in its collection

Looking closely there seem to be similarities, but also enough differences. It took me a long time to bring these issues together in one post….

Finally another commenter:

pat Says: Saw this and immediately thought of Satyendra Pakhalé’s ‘Panther’ project for Moroso’s 50th birthday. As I remember it, ‘Panther’ follows the same principle – multiple seating formats achieved by rotating the piece. Satyendra has elaborated more on the silhouette, though. See image 2 (blue background) http://www.satyendra-pakhale.com/Furniture/Panther/#

But I would say…same principle yes, but a lot of difference…besides…who was earlier?

Z-Ball by James Van Vossel

The Z-ball by James Van Vossel is an inflatable ergonomic ball, but its 3 handles are positioned in such a way to allow the user to sit further forward than on most balls. This supports the loin area more and results in more comfortable seating.

Glass and Steel Church Chairs by Studio Rafaschierii

Studio Rafaschierii recently completed an interesting project for a church in Metz: modern chancel furniture in magnesium and glass. Very non-traditional!
