Nest by Markus Johansson looks a lot like a spoke wheel on a low-rider, even though it's actually a seat. The Swedish designer decided to break away from tradition, opting for a more modern design, but with a twist -- literally. Wooden dowels are bent and braided to form the chair with padded seating to make it functional.

While Markus Johansson's 'Nest' may look simple, it's clear that lot of work was put into the chair. Check it out in the gallery.
