If you see a good piece of furniture left on the side of the road, do you take it home? This is what the New York-based modern furniture store Blu Dot hopes to find out with their ‘Real Good Experiment,’ a kind of urban study blended with performance art.

As a tribute to dumpster diving, Blu Dot’s Real Good Experiment places GPS-enabled chairs all over the city, from Union Square to the Met, assuming that passersby will take the chairs home. Blu Dot then tracks where the chairs go on their website.
