Although this hanging seat might appear to be a somewhat perplexing seating solution, it's truly a work of art that offers the ultimate marriage of style and structure. Designed by Montreal-based Felix Guyon, the Solo Cello Chair is produced by the Les Ateliers Guyon.

The Solo Cello Chair is named after a composition by composer Johann Sebastian Bach entitled 'Cello Suite No. 1.' The inspiration for the chair is purported by the designer to have come from a jewelry showcase he saw in a Saint Laurent boutique.

The hanging seat is crafted with sheer expertise and is currently utilized in hotels including The Alt Hotel in Halifax, Nova Scotia and the Hotel La Ferme Bai St-Paul. At first glance, the Solo Cello Chair almost looks itself like a musical instrument.
