The usual relationship between a person and his chair involves one sitting down onto the object in question, but these Grounded/Floating earrings will make those who usually repose rethink the concept of a seat.

Exploring idea of duality, designer Vivian Chiu removes the four-legged movable from it's secure floor footing, only to suspend it from a chain and hang it several feet off of the ground. Luckily for the wearer, these stripped cane chairs are a fraction of their usual size and weight, measuring just 4 inches in height and made from painted brass.
