While I’m not enamored by the overall effect of Shawn Weiland’s Affectual Chair, I do love the join of the wooden seat and steel legs. He’s created a smooth interface for a modular system, devised to allow legs of different sizes. Little else, however, manages to provoke praise. The chairs stance seems bulky, even with wire legs, and the angular waist of the seat back takes too much away from the curve of the legs. Still, there is just enough to grab attention – otherwise, of course, the chair wouldn’t pass muster for a post. (via Design Boom).

Weiland is based in San Francisco.
