Artist Gives Life to Ordinary Lawn Chairs

How funny would it be to come across a hitchhiking lawn chair looking for a ride to the garbage dump? Thanks to designer Bert Leschner, we can all say we’ve seen this unusual, yet hilarious, visual.

Rather than simply being a seat on a swing, the chair doubles as the swinger clutching onto the rope it’s affixed to and going for a playful ride. There’s even an instance in which the seat takes a seat!
