The use of netting creates a flexible seat that can be left outside, as opposed to rigid garden furniture that requires a cushion brought from indoors.
The wide holes should mean it dries off quickly after a shower of rain too.
Called Tie-break, the piece is manufactured by German brand Richard Lampert.

Here's some text from Bertjan Pot:
There are not that many soft-skin outdoor chairs. Mostly you bring a pillow outside to sit down into your garden furniture and then take it back inside when it starts to rain.
In the net we saw the possibility to make a soft (comfortable) outdoor-chair. Our advice: Put on a T-shirt, a pair of flip-flops and give your suit and tie a break.
Off course ‘Tiebreak’ can be used indoors as well.
