'Chairless' by Vitra proves that minimalism has infiltrated all areas of society. This chair is so minimalistic that it almost doesn't exist.

Fortunately for the ever shrinking world, 'Chairless' does exist. This nylon strap/chair was designed by Alejandro Aravena and modeled after a strap being used by an Ayoreo Indian. 'Chairless' by Vitra is the ultimate minimalist furniture design. Are you man enough to strap it on?

Implications - Consumers in modern society are looking for items that feature a clean-cut aesthetic. Products that are sleek allow customers to stay on the cutting edge of trends. Companies trying to appeal to more shoppers could develop more items like this.
