'Chair for Very Brief Visits' — Bruno Munari

This chair, designed in 1945, has a sloped seat that is uncomfortable to sit on.

Wrote Arlene Hirst in the New York Times, "It is therefore more of a philosophical meditation about furniture than anything you would offer to a guest."


Ms. Hirst clearly doesn't know me very well; perhaps she's never heard one of my favorite sayings, to wit: "Here's your hat, what's your hurry?"

From duplexdsgn: "The seat is tilted forward and is shorter than usual, the back higher."

You can too!

I happened on this device after reading Nicole Nguyen's recent Wall Street Journal review of the Apple Watch 9.

She wrote, "Garmin wearables, meanwhile, have lower-resolution displays that can last days. Some models have solar panels embedded in their watch faces, and can last weeks. It's something I’m painfully reminded of every time I forget my Apple Watch charger on a weekend trip (my italics). Cue the gloating by my Garmin-wearing husband, who never brings his charger."


She's the paper's lead tech columnist so how is it that TechnoDolt©®™ moi had to post this on X

to direct her to pick up the clue phone and get on the ABC (always be charging) bandwagon?

Fashion forward, too: it comes in Purple, Black, Blue, Light Green, Light Blue, Pink, or Silver to coordinate perfectly with your ensemble.
