Chairs come in a range of shape, sizes and styles, creating a unique spectrum of seats that can sometimes boggle the mind; the Rising Chair is one of those mind-boggling creations. Stunningly intricate, it looks more like an art piece than a piece of furniture.

Created by Dutch designer Robert van Embricqs, the Rising Chair was made with a single, fundamental question in mind, "To what degree is the object you’re creating capable of dictating its own design?" The Rising Chair is clearly the answer to this question. Basically, it can.

With beam-like wood strands, the Rising Chair was born out of a grid-like pattern that blossomed into what seems like a colorful flower petal. The material and the designer worked together to create its organic and modern aesthetic. Stats for Beaming Bucket Seats Trending: Older & Mild
