The Giacomo Standing Seat is a chair, yet the design overwhelming emphasizes a verticality that is seldom seen in objects for sitting. True, it is likely intended for placement before a raised surface such as a bar counter; however, its slender form and erect stature lack the usual suggestion of stability.

Natascha Harra-Frischkorn's design is a concept, but it would be wonderful to see how it works. She's developed a set of two model movables, cantilevering gracefully on thin bent metal frames that terminate in tail-like sculptural accents. The seats on top of the supportive structure are narrow and convexly curved, apparently requiring sitters to straddle them with care. The assertive Giacomo Standing Seat seems to challenge you to find your balance as you shift your weight onto it.
