How many times do we use chairs just for sitting? Chairs have, in addition to their function as a seat, many tasks in everyday life:
- We climb on them to catch robes at the top of the cabinet,
- We lean on them the dresses worn the day before,
- We use them to stack magazines up and to rest cell phone on.
It was time for a designer to start considering these different tasks and designing chairs to be more than simple seating. Steffen Schellenberger has reached this goal with "The Triplets", a family of chairs that are girlish and minimalist at the same time and have the function of a shelf, a cabinet and a hanger.
