Swiss studio Bernhard Burkard assures us this deck chair with no back legs is perfectly safe.

The Curt deck chair comprises a fabric seat slung between two diagonal legs with anti-slip feet and simply leans against a wall like a ladder.

The frame is made from local woods including ash and beech by people with mental or physical disabilities at the Altra workshop in Schaffhausen, Switzerland.

Here's some more information from Bernhard Burkard:


This deck chair is attractive in its simplicity. In combination with the environment it serve its purpose as a deck chair.

To achive best stability, it needs to be leaned against walls or rails in a flat angle. The anti-slip coated stand provides safe grip on every surface. Even though it looks dangerous it provides comfort seating and relaxing in every occasion.

The frame-part is manufactured in the sheltered workshop altra, made of local woods, such as ash and beech.

    Beautiful. I'd love to see a version designed that can be repeatably deconstructed into a travel size and reconstructed on the spot. Could really take off in an academic setting.

    It looks so sweet and comfortable..

    Creative but not very practical, no? Doesn’t need legs but it needs a wall… and a hard-wearing one too.

    So can’t use it in the garden, park or on the beach… or any open space in fact?

    Actually the back legs are the wall. Liar.
