The forts and bunkers of his childhood inspired Czech designer Michael Tomalik to design a wire frame chair that is “a place of convenience, comfort and personal repose“. His monkey-bar-ish construction is a kind of grownup fort, made comfortable with giant pillows and outfitted with books,  plants, and a light (to which we’d add a shade and dimmer).

This fort/nest would be quite beautiful in copper.
