This clever creation by Bratislava Academy of Fine Arts and Design student Petr Badura demands a double take. Constructed from a single sheet of bent aluminum, The Mono chair makes a pretty appearance; but if you’re not distracted by its good looks you may notice that there are only two rear legs. So how does it work? The legs of the sitter replace those of the chair, such that “a person is…required for the very chair to be complete.” Bent at a 90 degree angle, the pressure placed on the legs is very minimal while body weight is evenly distributed for an incredibly ergonomic experience. “The whole idea of this product is in the fact that the chair is an object that serves the man and is fully dependent on him,” says Badura. The young artist’s deep understanding of user and product can be seen through his innovative approach, leading the way toward an exciting future for efficient design.
