Relax Your Body and Melt Your Mind In This Möbius Chair

Illustration for article titled Relax Your Body and Melt Your Mind In This Möbius Chair

It might provide a place to rest your weary legs, but this United Colors for Benetton chair designed and built by Pereira Miguel Architects will give your brain a good workout as you try and and comprehend where its curvy frame begins and ends.


It's technically not a true möbius strip, though, lacking the requisite twist that would give the bent plywood frame a continuous single side. But the effect is convincing enough. The use of rope webbing instead of a cushion also provides a lovely hammock-like effect, not too mention a means for crumbs, remotes, and lost currency to simply fall through to the floor.

There isn't really anything to judge scale, but, that lovely curved wood frame looks like it would cut into the users thighs in a most painful manner. I would also be concerned about leaning forward, as it looks as if it would result in a serious face plant.
