How Is This One-Legged Chair Not Falling Over?

How is this chair, with only one of its leg on the floor, not falling over already? Hell, how can this guy stand on this thing! Is it a camera trick? Nope, just clever design.

Peter Bristol, the guy who made it, explains:

A plate concealed by a thick carpet allows a robust cantilevered seat. Three well placed leg "stumps" and the chair looks as though it has just been magically sliced apart.

If I saw this in real life without knowing the explanation, my brain would melt. Actually, knowing the explanation still wouldn't stop brain meltage from happening. [Peter Bristol via BoingBoing]
