CHAIR AND LAMP
File this under the “Why didn’t I think of that?” category! Nieuwe Heren, a Dutch design firm ran by two designers in their twenties, came up with a chair and lamp combo that could be accommodated in the smallest of spaces. They made it to provide parents a seat on which to read their children a bedtime story with a lamp at the ready. When you’re done using it, lean it against the wall and leave the lamp on for a bit of ambient light. Cool.
