If you're designing a seat, why not enhance it with additional functionality in a way that would make the most of its necessary footprint? Designer Victoria Molina might have had this consideration in mind when she came up with the Cage Chair.

This practical piece of furniture has been assembled from fine metal rods that form complete contours of the base, the backrest and the seat from identical and uniformly spaced outlines. Additional support for the structure is provided by a set of five wire frame squares that are oriented perpendicularly to the others.

This configuration creates an enclosure in the bottom of the Cage Chair. You can use this area as a magazine rack, or as a place to store blankets and other items, indoors or outdoors. Stats for Practical Wireframe Perches Trending: Older & Chilly
