Even though a chair’s main purpose is to provide a platform for sitting, we all use them in an array of different ways. Designed for hiding, climbing, storing and even drying clothes, Seung-Yong Song‘s ‘Object Collection’ is a series of chairs with an added function. Made from white birch and a combination of other materials, these South Korean designs playfully explore the boundaries of an iconic furniture piece.

Seung-Yong Song’s series consists of 3 ‘Object’ chairs; A, E, and O. Object-A is a lean chair perfect for a small space, and features a long backrest that turns into a bookshelf and makes the most of frequently unused heights. Object-E allows you to dry your clothes while you rock it! And what may be the most whimsical of them all, is Object-O — the O comes with a traditional biodegradable paper lantern that is big enough to provide a bit of recluse from the busy world.
