Chair Without Legs

For this project, we wanted to explore the design of a chair without legs. We started with just an idea and tried to see what could be done.

First, we made some sketches of how such a chair could look like. After that we researched existing chairs, so we would know all possibilities and limits, which there are in terms of design and technology.

The chair is made of metal wire and plastic:

The frame of the chair is made from metal wire. This wire can be bent to a certain extent, so it turns out to be suitable for the required shape. The advantage of this material is that it is easy to handle and assemble, as well as being a light, recyclable and readily available resource.

The seat has an ergonomic form which means it’s comfortable for you to sit on now and then. Furthermore, it makes use of recycled plastic from water bottles which consists roughly about 15% percent of the total weight. In this way we contribute positively towards environmental protection.

When designing this chair we strove towards making something that shows off the benefits of using the least materials for mass production.

No legs are needed because the chair is supported by the ground:

Kartell, whose name is practically synonymous with chairs, has come out with a new type of chair. The most interesting thing about Kartell’s newest product is what it doesn’t have:

Yes, legs—as in the things we most often use to support ourselves as we sit down and stand up. While this might sound like a monumental design flaw at first glance, rest assured that you’ll still be able to do both without looking like a fool on the off chance that your chair loses balance.
