Designed for both political and sustainable purposes, the Speaker's Chair is an interesting seat and pedestal hybrid. In general, it is a public furniture piece that will probably be used more informally than anything else. It was, however, inspired by the global climate summit in Copenhagen to "ignit[e] conversation during public assemblies," as PSFK reports.
Designed by Sofie Alexandrine Kjaergaard, the Speaker's Chair "takes debate from the hands of the elite to a wider audience," as PSFK further elaborates. What an admirable design. I wonder if anyone took a stand.
