This Chair Can Be Worn Like a Backpack

If you demand that your furniture is both reassuringly substantial and also portable, then you probably have a tough time navigating life. But here's something to help: a real chair that can be worn as a backpack.

The Nomadic Chair by Jorge Penades is constructed from wood, but doesn't require anyscrews, nails or glue—it simply uses some smart plastic connectors to fit together. Penades explains the design:
‘Luxury is not anymore a matter of comfort. nowadays, luxury is to be able to decide where you want to have a moment of peace, a chance to escape from hectic activity of contemporary lifestyles.’
Nice. So, when you've finished sitting, dismantle, pack and sling it on your back—ready to find the next spot to take a break. More here.
