Most photographs of interiors you see these days show clutter-free spaces filled with sleek, clean furniture. Germany-based designer Stephan Schulz's Comfy Cargo Chair bucks this trend by encouraging you to not only be a pack-rat, but to let your stuff all hang out:
The 'Comfy Cargo Chair' originated from the idea to create a piece of furniture which does not predetermine the surface for the user. The object is not finished, but rather requires creative collaboration by the owner.
The chair's form is reminiscent of a three dimensional grid. It consists simply of hollow spaces whose open structure requires filling with personal things such as pillows, blankets, newspapers, books, cuddly pets etc. By packing the chair full of personal belongings, the user changes the 'design,' and thus becomes the creator of an individual piece of furniture. Conceptually the open framework of the chair is meant to assist a creative acquisition, a 'nesting' process.
