Chairless by Vitra

Maybe it’s my lack of a meaty posterior, but I often have trouble sitting on floors comfortably. Designed by Alejandro Aravena for Swiss design firm Vitra, Chairless is a strap inspired by a similar device used by the Ayoreo Indians of Paraguay to make it easier to sit down wherever you are without having to wrap your arms around your knees. While I’m not sure how this solves the padding issue, I wouldn’t mind having this thing every time I get stuck in a crowded train station or waiting for a friend in a public square.
