This is the Comfy Cargo Chair, and as you can see you can fill it with what ever you want. It is designed by Stephan Schulz and the idea behind the chair was to create a piece of furniture that has no restrictions as far as the form is concerned. What is great about this chair is that the designer gives the original shape to the chair but leaves its owner to complete the design; this way the surface the item remains unfinished giving the user the opportunity to change its form in any possible way.
The design consists of a three dimensional grid. An open structure of hollows that allow the user to fill with any material; books, newspapers, pillows, anything you can imagine. The choice of material, shape and texture of the things that will “fill” the chair reflect the taste of the owner whilst it makes it a personal design at the same time. A creative procedure that can be repeated over and over again, a chance for everybody to be the creator of an individual piece of furniture. The Comfy Cargo Chair consists of 52.46 meters of 8mm sturdy rounded steel. It has 66 curved elements and alone weighs 20.89 kg, with a volumetric capacity of 0.5 cubic meters. Together the cross beams and curves provide a very stable construction for sitting.
This is a very creative and fun idea, and I like the fact that you can choose the filling of your own chair and change it as many times as you'd like. If you get bored with the look of your chair, you just put something new inside of your chair! This is perfect for an indecisive person or someone who likes to change things a lot. You don't have to buy a new chair, you just find what ever lying around in your home and put it in your chair. Its as simple as that!
