Don't let the simplicity of the LEAN Chair and Coffee Table design fool you, this piece of furniture has a lot to offer. With its almost abstract, geometrical shape, it is essentially a two-in-one creation, as you have probably already concluded thanks to its name.

What you can also figure out quite quickly is how it functions. The LEAN Chair and Coffee Table essentially leans against any surface to become either a chair or a coffee table. Although this is not necessarily a new concept, there is something quite unique in the look of this furniture piece.

Designed by San Francisco-based industrial designer William Lee in collaboration with Manu Garza of architecture and design studio et al. collaborative, the LEAN Chair and Coffee Table was created to challenge the spatial restrictions of urban living.
