Limbo Chair by Induflex
View Slideshow

The Limbo Chair, designed by the Portuguese furniture design company Induflex, is a quirkily-designed piece of furniture that is also a cozy place to relax. It reminds me of a shirt collar that can be worn up or down, depending on your mood (I guess the cool kids keep it popped). The colors are bright and cheery making this not only a comfortable chair, but an artistic element in any room.

If you want to relax in a cocoon-like environment, keep the chair in standing formation.

If you’re feeling a little more social, release the flaps and let them gently fall behind the chair.

The Limbo Chair is being presented at Salone 2012 in Milan.
