Designer Naoki Ono, founder of Tokyo-based YOY design studio, presented this extraordinary “Canvas” chair at Salone Satellite during last week’s Milan Design Week 2013 (aka Salone Internazionale del Mobile). When not hanging like a conventional canvas, the Canvas chair can be used simply by leaning it against a wall.
The frame is constructed of wood and aluminum and covered by an elastic fabric printed with the texture of canvas and a drawing of a more traditional chair. While sitting on the Canvas may not look ideal for long periods of time, it certainly seems perfect for rooms where space is tight.
