Hungary-born, Portland-based designer Ákos Huber wanted to explore alternative ways of constructing a chair other than the typical symmetrical and perpendicular build. Taking inspiration from fishing structures that are cantilevered over the sea, he designed the Chair of the Moment, a seemingly random structure but was actually built with much purpose and intention.

The Chair of the Moment has a modified pinwheel arrangement made up of seven angular white oak rods that are all connected with dowel joints to form a closed circuit. This in turn creates a reciprocal frame where each rod reclines on the previous one, making the entire structure stable. The backrest features an adjustable ball joint that allows the user to adjust their position. The seat is made of canvas to pair well with the white oak and create a comfortable seat.
