Less Chair with the Chairless by Alejandro Aravena

Vitra introduced Chairless, a sitting strap only, designed by Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena in Milan.

Aravena was inspired by a similar sitting strap commonly used by the Ayoreo Indians living in the border region between Paraguay and Bolivia. A portion of the proceeds from Chairless will go to the non-profit Foundation for Paraguayan Indian Communities, for support of the Ayoreo Indians.

ChairMAN Chair

ChairMAN Chair

Yes! Another designer who understands the working of a Blog.

British designer Benjamin Shine informed me via e-mail he has developed the ChairMAN chair.

Constructed from 25mm thick acrylic, ChairMAN aims to playfully demonstrate the relationship between a chair and a man, whereby the chair’s role as an object in which to sit, becomes visually interpreted through the literal and surreal form of a figure sitting, slumped back and relaxed.

ChairMAN was launched during London Design Week at the British fashion house, Aquascutum on Regent Street, where it is currently being exhibited. Available as a limited-edition series in a range of colors, Benjamin is now looking to reproduce the chair for mass market with a suitable distributor following current interest and demand.

Thanks and success Benjamin! May your chair designs shine:-)
P.S. How come you have your studio Down Under?
