Free Modern Chairs in New York City Shine a Light on Human Behavior


There's a fascinating social experiment underway on the streets of New York, wherein the modern furniture company BluDot is depositing a series (25, to be exact) of their signature Real Good Chairs around the city, free for the taking. The chairs are equipped with GPS tracking devices so their journeys can be monitored publicly in the spirit of "curb mining," the act of finding furniture on street corners and taking it into our lives. Learn where new chairs are being abandoned by following @realgoodchair on Twitter, and be sure to check out the wonderful Flickr stream of the chairs in situ.
