Last month was Stockholm Design Week. Although I wasn’t actually there (yet). I did spot a really clever chair on Dezeen.
At the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2010, industrial designer Shane Schneck exhibited a stack-able wooden chair for the Danish company Hay.
Its neat design feature is that it can be hung from the edge of a table from its seat, making cleaning that much easier.
Its strength comes from cross laminating layers of wood in the seat. This allows for structural support, lightweight and durability. And unlike conventional chairs it doesn’t have front legs so that not only can it be cantilevered from a table but also easily stacked on top of each other.
The name RU was taken from the kangaroo. The unique stance and extended legs are reminiscent of “ru”.
I think its both functional and cool.
