At first glance the Iron Throne of George R.R. Martin may come to mind, asymmetrical prongs sticking out at all angles ready to poke the unwary.

At second glance, though, Markus Johannson‘s nest chair appears stable and potentially quite comfortable, with each spindly piece of structure stretching out to become a support as well as a potential handle or arm rest.

As simple as the construction looks, a great deal of work went into each threaded connection spiraling around the central cushioned seat, as seen in this video.
