turning the act of sitting into a game, italian designer emanuele magini has integrated a football net into a chair frame to create ‘lazy football’ for italian furniture manufacturer campeggi. the simple metal body of the furniture piece has widened front legs, mimicking the form of a goal net – sitters on the chair become players in a friendly game of ‘lazy’ football, requiring no real skill, just the ability to block. the design, cradling the line between sporting accessory and seating object, was on show at salone del mobile during milan design week 2012.
