Screw comfort. At least, that's Stefan Zwicky's take on furniture design if his concrete chair is anything to go by: five pieces of concrete held together by steel rebar make for a striking, if numbing, piece of design.
A play on the iconic Corbusier LC-2 armchair, it is perhaps designed to make us reflect on industrialisation or, as Design Boom puts it, express "the weight and cold nature of concrete". Or maybe it's just a concrete chair.
Anyway, it would actualy make a fine piece of outdoor furniture, especially in more inclement locations -- because you'd never need to worry about keeping it dry. Just remember a cushion. [Stefan Zwicky via Swiss Miss]
