Two NASA astronauts are currently orbiting Earth in a SpaceX spaceship and about to embark on a fiery fall through the atmosphere, into the ocean.

Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley became the first people to fly SpaceX’s brand-new spaceship, the Crew Dragon, on May 30. It was the first crewed launch from American soil since July 2011 and the first-ever launch of a commercial spacecraft with humans inside. The ship docked to the International Space Station the next day, and Behnken and Hurley have since been conducting science experiments and spacewalks there.

With the right balance of form and function, chairs offer both a comforting seat and a point of visual interest. Lately, a certain sculptural design has caught our eye as a near-perfect example of this balance, and (at least according to Google search data) others are noticing, too.

Originally dubbed CH24, the chair was designed in 1949 by furniture designer Hans Wegner as part of a series of seats inspired by the thrones of Chinese emperors.
