Canvas is a picture of a chair that also happens to be a functioning chair. The chair consists of a frame of elastic fabric with the image of a chair printed on it. When the frame is leaned against a wall, a person can sit against the fabric, which conforms to their shape. The Canvas series includes a stool, armchair, and sofa. The series was created by designers Naoki Ono and Yuki Yamamoto of Tokyo-based studio YOY.
