The Sacrificial Chair by Thing Industries Gives Up Its Original Purpose

The Sacrificial Chair essentially sacrifices one practical purpose for another. It follows an observation that such pieces of furniture are not always used for sitting. Instead, they become like racks for clothing, whether to display them, store them or dry them. To highlight this secondary job, the Sacrificial Chair gives up its original purpose by boasting a bare-boned frame more conducive to hanging than sitting.

Designed by Thing Industries, the Sacrificial Chair is a slimmer version of the Punga & Smith's similarly named design. Showing that less is more, the frame is created in all-white to make it almost invisible against white walls. This allows the Sacrificial Chair to blend into its surroundings when not in use.

Great for all types of homes, the Sacrificial Chair replaces boring racks.
