Sami Kallio: Stich Chair
Swedish designer Sami Juhani Kallio recently took first place at the Promosedia Design Competition for his clever Stich chair. While the chair looks a little stiff (it is made from wooden panels), the bright green rope that holds the piece together also gives it unusual flexibility. The backrest can be lowered to transform your chair into a small desk. Not only does the rope add a nice aesthetic and function element, it also gives the impression that this is a unique piece and not just some factory churn out.
