Hand Truck Chair: Another Example of More Function, Less Stuff

Multi-functional Hand Truck Chair

Designer Philippe Peyridieu certainly has a sense of humor, but his Hand Truck Chair is more than just a silly piece designed for design's sake (though it is, admittedly, a little silly). Aside from answering the question "What would it look like if a chair and hand truck had a lovechild?", it shows how similar these two seemingly disparate objects really are. And the more we recognize how two random objects can be combined into one, the closer we come to embracing multi-functional objects as a great way to get more utility from less stuff.

It might not super-practical, but it makes you think: what else in your home is a pair of wheels and a handle away from adding a totally new function? ::Banal Extra via ::Dwell Daily
