Chair as inspiration for snowboard binding

The Aeron chair was the most famous office seat of all time, but we never expected it to show up in a Burton CO2 snowboard binding.

The binding borrows the chair's breathable webbing and strong Y support core, creating a lightweight and flexible structure that will run interested snowboarders $390. It's incredibly interesting to see the unique design principles of one product make their way into another product, even if it's obvious (in retrospect) that such ideas would easily scale for universal application.
