Introducing the “Lean Chair”

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.

The piece is a parasitic prototype, which cleverly supports itself by gripping into the masonry work of the walls it leans against. Harbert’s idea is that with lightweight and mobile furniture, urban landscapes can quickly be transformed into community spaces.
