Designed by Architect Daniel Libeskind and Klaus Nienkamper the Spirit House Chair is constructed of stainless steel sheets in “interlocking, self-supporting structures, which are reminiscent of crystals”. The chair was designed for the Spirit House constructed last year in the Royal Ontario Museum’s Michael Lee-Chin Crystal. Whats more, each chair comes with a custom laser-engraved signature of the designer. I like Libeskind work in general, but this chair really stands apart – I love it! And it quite makes me think – “Origami in Steel”.

The ‘ulo chair‘ designed by Ian Walton is amazing, not for the concept but the structural detailing. Being a designer myself, I know how difficult it is to bring your concepts alive just the way you’ve imagined them. Technical glitches form part of everyday frustrations. So, this chair -the way it so smoothly transforms from a regular chair to a lounge version – is really praiseworthy. Simple design, great detail!
