The Phant Chair is a piece of furniture that endearingly embodies the notion of an organized mess. Designed as a stool, the object functions most naturally as a craft table, encouraging its young users to tidy up their art-making implements in a way that certainly isn't typical.
Martin Jakobsen created four rounded wooden legs that support a timber tabletop. There are no drawers or cabinets in this item; however, long and narrow grooves have been cut into the surface. These are just the right size for pencil crayons to be slipped inside to lie flush with the smooth seat. Facing every which way, the shallow slots accommodate six separate utensils, which suffice to provide a child with a spectrum of hues with which to doodle. Just make sure that there is paper available near the Phant Chair.
