There are two different kinds of “grid butt” chairs. This is the ULTIMATE grid butt chair. If you have exposed leg, you WILL get grid all up on your butt. Which some designy people might like. I don’t know. If I’m going to sit in a chair that’s fancy and expensive, I expect my body to look the same (or better) when I get up from it).
As stated by Sara Pollard, a RISD Illustration senior about chairs she encounters at RISD (Rhode Island School of Design)
