Kim envisions the Hanging Chair in public areas like airports or train stations; even libraries and museums.  The chairs can be used for sitting, or for just parking your stuff for awhile while you relax your arms.

Kim likes displaying the partial mobius in different fabrics like canvas, plastic... even paper!

Personally, I love the design.  But how do you keep very heavy items out of these chairs?  Or people?  I don't worry about the materials giving way, so much as the wall caving in when someone drops suddenly to the ground on his butt.

All in all, though, a pretty special industrial design, don't you think?
