Wicker Chair — Marc Newson


From the website:

The "Wicker" chair is shaped to accommodate the human body.

It is made of wicker and aluminum, two materials dear to Newson.


The chair rests on one central aluminum leg, which makes it appear to float.


Features and Details:

29.92"H x 26.37"L x 35.82"D

Woven rattan wicker body

Varnished aluminum base

Shaped to accommodate WHOSE human body? The designer must work part-time on grunt-class airline seats, the ones that few modern American butts can be wedged into without a greased spatula.
Chair, or butt - which is the problem? You be the judge. As long as the answer is chair.

Butt I digress. 😬
