Although our bodies are designed to move, the furniture we possess is usually based on a monofunctional posture. Day to day, we tend to segregate our basic bodily needs and just stare at screens, often forgetting how important it is to keep joints and muscles moving. To compensate for this inertia, we’d like to introduce you to “Segregation of Joy” by Govert Flint. This innovative skeletal seat allows you to take different postures and move freely, and boost your health and happiness, all from the comfort of your chair.

Hosting dinner parties can be a challenge for those of us who live in cramped city apartments. If you don’t enjoy asking your guests to eat while sitting on the floor, there’s a simple space-saving solution that will help with this common dilemma.

Created by London-based, Canadian-born designer Philippe Malouin, the Hanger Chair is an elegant collision between, you guessed it, a hanger and a folding chair. When you don’t need the extra seating, you can hang the chairs in the closet, neatly and out of sight.

Invented by Copenhagen-based Studio Chudy and Grase, Miito’s clean, innovative design saves both money and time.
