The Adna Chaise looks as though it is being supported by a pile of sticks. Interestingly enough, even though the design is quite haphazard from below, it is pretty sleek and refined from above. This contrast really makes this piece of furniture appealing.

Designed by David Weeks Studio, the Adna Chaise is part of the MatterMade Collection New America Number Two, which happens to celebrate the history of American design. Made using maple, fiberglass and leather upholstery, the Adna Chaise explores the idea of furniture as sculptures.

Stunningly asymmetrical, the Adna Chaise is deceptively complicated. Despite its captivating juxtaposition of materials and design direction, it is a rather simple design that is both organic and man-made.
