I can totally get behind Jonas Nyffenegger's anti-pew church chair design. Considering that secularism is sweeping across Western Europe, not to mention other parts of the world, his simple yet revolutionary chair for churches and cathedrals could really help reshape how these spaces are used. Granted, religious sites are beginning to host other non-worship events such as meetings, concerts and tourist destinations, but Jonas Nyffenegger's design will still surely nudge them into even more secular arenas.

By providing comfort and modularity, Jonas Nyffenegger's church chair, dubbed Rever by the recent ECAL grad, was conceived specifically for the medieval Cathédrale Notre-Dame of Lausanne. Essentially two chairs in one, Jonas Nyffenegger's Rever seat allows easy reorganization for the cathedral when different events take place. These chairs can easily be implemented into other churches. Stats for Modular Secular Seating Trending: Older & Average
