To be sitting down is for most people a synonym of “boring”… but it doesn’t have to be!

Designed especially for those people who don’t sit normally. This chair can not only be used as a chair, but since it comes with an attached surface that can be used either as a laptop perch or a writing surface, it gives people the chance to sit however they want. “It addresses the need for informal seating in public spaces–where people transiting from a formal situation to another can sit and have a short break, take notes, type an email, or have an impromptu meeting.”.

Shopping Cart Chair.
Why can only children have their own carts in the supermarket? Thanks to Frank Scheiner and his chair called “Consumer’s Rest”, now grown-ups can have fun too! The chair was made in 1983 actually, and Frank came up with this idea thanks to a comment about shopping carts that his mom once made while looking at wire-mesh furniture. Link
As the name states, with this chair you can sit down first, and then pick the book you want, because the library is in the chair itself! Link

This chair isn’t only that, but a flower bed for a Cactus too! It has a double function: To sit (obviously), but it is also used to investigate the effect that visual data has on the user’s experience. It tries to show that even though this cactus doesn’t represent an actual threat, it makes the user feel discomfort at first, only by seeing that the cactus is below them. Link
This is one of the coolest chairs! In itself is, of course, a comfortable and awesome chair… but once closed, it can save space and be used as a chair and table. But when “open”, you can sit on it, and you’ll have a comfortable side table in which to put your glass of wine, soda, a can of beer.. Whatever you want! Pretty cool indeed. Link
