Dutch designer Joong Han Lee of Studio Homunculus has created the Symbiotic Chair. The unique chair has only two legs on it’s backside, the user must balance with their legs to sit on the chair. In designer’s words, “A chair that requires symbiosis between the user and the object itself. The user must balance with their legs to sit down and the chair is obsolete without the user’s presence.

As the user sits down, the weight put on the seat counterbalances directly onto their legs. This mutual dependency allows the user to feel empathy for the chair in a most tangible, physical way.”
