An Lena Chair by Simone Harbert

This peculiar chair, called the An Lena chair, was created by Simone Harbert as part of a student exhibition at the Burg Giebichenstein College of Art and Design in Germany. The piece was a commentary on parasitism, as it supported itself from gripping two surfaces: the floor and the wall (I know, I know, I didn’t understand it either – anyhoo, the student expo is about Parasites & Hybrids). But the bigger question is, without looking at Simone’s website, would you say that the chair will be able to support your body? Or would you fall flat on your butt if you try to sit on it?
