And if design celebrates the renewed demand for creativity, there are those who have taken a drastic decision: to give up furniture almost entirely. Even if in this case it seems that the reasons are of a different nature: being without furniture is good for your health.
A lifestyle free from furniture
Well, now imagine having to put aside one of these pieces, close it in the garage for a few months before abandoning it to its fate as a second-hand object or, worse still, bulky waste. And then to have to do it with everyone else. Does the idea just make you hurt?
But what's wrong with a sofa?
The question, then, is undoubtedly a real one. Can giving up chairs and sofas really be a solution?
The benefits of furniture-free living
If we talk about sedentariness, then, we cannot fail to mention the problems caused by incorrect postures and those who have tried and then become promoters of a lifestyle that is furniture-free often highlight this reality.
Many of the objects that we have become used to sitting on have contributed to us sitting in unnatural positions, perhaps because of the way they have been designed or because of the way in which we use them, apparently they feel comfortable but over a long period of time they become harmful, especially to the back.
The other advantages of a life free from furnishings have to do with mental well-being: a space that is as empty as possible is a space that does not need to be reordered frequently, a box without objects to worry about, precluded from stress and immune to any form of senseless and counterproductive material attachment.
