If you’re the type to shy away from attention, you might not want to take a seat in a chair that essentially puts you on display, framing you from various angles each time you adjust your position. The rectangular ‘Frame’ by Ola Giertz is a modern easy chair that functions like a three-dimensional picture frame for both the sitter and the wall or room behind him.

Soundproofed upholstery gives the sitter a sense of privacy and solitude, yet to others in the room, he’s just as conspicuous as a piece of framed art thanks to the shape of the chair.

Sit up straight to use it like a stool, lean against the side for more comfort, or place the chair against the wall for additional back support.  Stack multiple units together to create a deeper space.

‘Frame’ is available in multiple colors at Swedish furniture retailer Materia.
