Every house has some impossible corner, some ill-shaped nook, some domestic no man’s land, where furniture simply does not — will not — go. To that end, industrial designer William Lee and Manu Garza of Brooklyn-based et al. collaborative dreamed up Lean: an odd and yes, lean, wedge of a chair (or a table, depending on how you arrange it), that’s designed as the perfect remedy to your most imperfect residential architecture.
Stand Lean upright, and it fits neatly into cramped little corners. Turn it on its side, and it works like a coffee table, one that can squeeze into all sorts of awkward spaces. It’s even got a built-in bookshelf.
