The Dango armchair

Falling under the weird but wonderful category that hasn't seen much action lately, is the Dango, a modern plywood armchair with multi-use poufs from Agnieszka Kowal.

The Polish designer created the armchair after helping friends move house. Their belongings consisted of oversized and bulky furniture and spurred Kowal into designing something different. Inspired by Japanese culture, Kowal created a smaller armchair that was both comfortable and portable. The seat is low to the ground and is made of potter-cut plywood which gives it its flexibility. Leather straps help it to maintain its arched shape. The armchair also comes with two upholstered cushions that slide onto the back and seat thereby increasing the chair's overall comfort. The cushions can also be used in the traditional manner as  poufs for additional seating on the floor.
