When it comes to fun and modern furniture design, Velichko Velikov sure knows how to deliver. One of his recent pieces entitled Lastika, is a wicked chair that will have you bouncing up and down.

Velichko Velikov designed Lastika for LAGO, an Italian manufacturer. What makes sitting on Velichko Velikov's Lastika chair so different is that it is a seat composed of 40 brightly colored elastics. The material creates an interesting rocking feeling completely different from the traditional rocking chair. Although it may feel like it's a shaky structure, this piece by Velichko Velikov is actually very stable, and if you want to purchase more than one to fill your house with, they are also stackable!

Velichko Velikov presented the Lastika design at Milan Design Week and Salone Mobile Milan 2011.
