A simple wooden board can make an effective seat if you've got a prop on which to perch it, and Michael Turner has managed to create a fun and functional piece of furniture from three planks to compose his Chair 1.3A.

The object looks like an extremely well-finished DIY project, but a close eye to its superior craftsmanship and composition tells of its deliberate design. Three wide rectangular staves are slotted together, with two propped vertically and the third resting horizontally within the merged pair. A small square cushion sits atop the seat that results, which provides ample support for the sitter thanks to the outlying outer edges of lumber. Chair 1.3A of the Turner Collective makes the perfect perch with a charming crafter quality.
