The Project: Spyndi chair
The Design: Inspired by the joints of the human spine, this chair is made up of sliding wooden pieces that attach to create the curvature of your choosing. The two angled segments, designed by Lithuanian furniture designer Mindaugas Zilionis, can be linked together to form chaise lounges, stools, armchairs, and side tables—along with shorter pieces to add an arm or headrest. The project has been nine years in the making, and the designers are so confident in their handiwork that they're already offering customers a lifetime warranty!
