Skulls, as we have found, make excellent seating spaces. All you need to do is find one that will comfortable hold your arse, and you could be on your way to doing so many great things, the least of which would be sitting on a giant fake skull.
Skulls go exceptionally well with brains, which is the reason I always prefer to keep my brain firmly in the skull. Sometimes it is a little too tight, but mostly, I’m okay. This love affair of skull and brain has taken the next step where they’re together as furniture. Artist/designer Vladi Rapaport has crafted a combo of a skull chair and brain ottoman, both destined to be together just like god intended.
Being an evil genius requires great attention to your lair and appearance. Sure you could be sitting in a Skull mountain like Skeletor, but then you sit in a regular chair with a couple of skulls and shenanigans randomly thrown in, ruining the effect. You could get yourself a scary chair, but that usually kills the comfort. Not in this chair though, the Skull Armchair is meant to be a comfortable chair.
We see Flow by Taiwanese designer Cheng-Tsung Feng and craft artist Kao-Min Chen, and we cannot imagine this mess of bamboo strips could be comfortable. In fact, looking at its base and the possible amount of injuries that could happen, this could be something like the Iron Throne of Westeros. The designer though maintains that it is a comfortable bamboo chair “light and free as a cloud” and where you could enjoy a lazy afternoon.
Goodness of a hammock meets the chair in the very interesting Cradle chair by British designer Benjamin Hubert. It includes a cushion for seating backed by a net structured like a hammock, so the chair overall becomes half a hammock. One where you sit rather than plain lay down. The hammock part uses a non elastic textile so the chair has the right tension to support the body.
Having a good posture is absolutely desirable, but sometimes, the question must arise about the lengths you’re willing to go for that. The ideal thing to do would be having a good exercise routine, but many people tend to be short on time for such important activities. Another option would be sitting on a balance ball while at work. It is a simple solution to give you a workout and keep the back strong while you slave away at the computer.
A satirical look at the concept of DRM, this chair intends to show the absurdity of the idea. Called DRM Chair, the creation of students at Swiss university ECAL calculates the number of times it has been sat upon using a sensor, and when the counter reaches eight, it goes into self-destruct mode. Joints in the chair are made of wax, which start to get heated by a nichrome wire once the number of intended uses is complete, and eventually heat it enough to make the wax melt and for the chair to fall apart.
I’d call this the chair of wisdom, simply because it is chock full of books. The apparently super heavyweight chair is the creation of Alvaro Tamarit and named Bench of Thoughts. If it looks ever made you think otherwise, know that it is pretty expensive. Costs $8500. Via Colossal
I’d never thought of it, but apparently sitting on a subwoofer while it plays at full blast can be fun. And I just had very inappropriate visuals of things vibrating while someone sits on the woofer. Made by Ministry of Design, the chair has a fiberglass frame and a soft seating area. This thing would be a real blast for the ears and the bums.
If this chair didn’t creep me out so much, I’d say it seems to be welcoming with open arms. Perhaps it is innocent in spite of its looks, but the design by Oleksandr Shestakovych doesn’t really look as welcoming as it would like to. Via LikeCool
