The function of the Chiks Seat really is not obvious the first time you lay eyes on it. The curious contraption consists of a pole with a rubber tip and a cluster of wires in the other end that expand to spread a piece of cloth. The entire thing takes the rough dimensions of a parasol.
With the red fabric open, you might start to realize the potential of this unusual object. It seems to be a supported sling and the hollow metal rod is sturdy enough to bear your weight on top of the grippy dome in the base. Kaspars Jursons' Chiks Seat is a compact stool that affords sufficient rest for your legs, but keeps you on the ball with your balance.
