Swiss designer Markus Bangerter has created this chair by using heat as his creative tool of choice.

Although the chair looks like it’s made up of a series of felt pieces that could easily collapse with a light touch, the fragile-looking structure is as sturdy as can be. Markus Bangerter has used intensive heat to mould each piece into place. Having a chair like this in your home would definitely impress even the most artsy guests you have over.

It’s always refreshing to see a design as new and inventive as this, and Markus Bangerter promises to keep them coming.

Implications - Designs that dare to push the limits on creativity attract a larger amount of attention than those which simply focus on function. Taking risks and experimenting with styles could help an artist get their name out there.
