Are you ready for another batch of strange chairs for the month of November? Most designs are still in the prototype phase, but some are actually on the market right now. Would you want to sit in any of these? Not sure if I’d be willing to give up my office chair for one of these inventions but they are definitely very creative to say the least.
Volcanic Rock Chair
Ian Blasco’s Metamorphosis chair looks like a left over piece of furniture from a volcanic eruption. But in reality, the chair is sliced by hand out of 16 layers of expanded polypropylene foam. (Source)
Made from 10,000 drinking straws, the Clutch Chair is an exploratory research piece created by Scott Jarvie. The development process of this piece was from an observation of the structural characteristics of trees.
The Klaps Stool by design studio Malafor. Klaps Stool is a stool by placing magazines between the wooden pieces. It has small wheels attached to the bottom pice, so it is easily movable. Hopefully you have a lot of extra magazines lying around for this invention!
The Waltz Lounge by Miso Soup Design, includes a winged chair plus ottoman, which can be hiden underneath the lounge when not in use. Pretty clever idea for storage if you ask me.
Two For One
Never thought the day would come when two chairs become one. The Silla Guara inside-out collection by Danic Design does just that. Created in Mexico city, it is only in the Prototype phase. The materials that make up this chair are red wood for the inner core and corian for the outer shell.
Sheetseat designed by Ufuk Keskin. Produced from a sheet of plywood and can be folded back to its flat form with only 3/4″ thickness. It was exhibited at IDSA’s Equilateral during New York Design Week. “Produced by cutting a sheet of plywood, the chair can be folded flat with 3/4″ thickness. Easy production and minimal assembled volumes saves labor and energy for production and transportation.”
“The Flux Chair combines design with the practical advantages of foldable furniture in an innovative way. Folded in, the Flux Chair can be easily carried as a case and stored completely flat, without giving away its final shape. Within 10 seconds the case transforms into a fullfledged design chair. It will be delivered mid 2009.”
After searching for more crazy chairs to share I’ve found 5 more wacky and weird ones to add to our list!
5. Tank Chaircheap discount viagra
-content/uploads/2009/10/tank_chair.jpg”>If you want a chair that can go anywhere, literally, then the Tank Chair is the right choice for you! This is a custom off-roading chair, “conquers streams, mud, snow, sand, gravel — allowing you to get back to nature — and you can also climb up and down stairs.” It features motors built by NPC Robotics. I know I definitely could use these to climb the three flights of stairs in my house… *Source*
4. Animi CasaWho ever thought sitting on balls would be the next idea for a new chair? The Feel Young “is made of 120 soft and extremely pleasant balls. It can be used as a spare bed for unexpected guests.” I don’t think I’ve ever sat on a chair full of extremely pleasant balls…not even sure if I know what that means :-/ *Source*
3. Anthony Redmile Carved Armchair
The Anthony Redmile Carved Armchair is by far the creepiest devil chair I’ve ever seen, make that the only devil chair I’ve ever seen. To add to the creepiness of this chair is the fact that it is made with malachite bone. The chair was originally made in England in the 1960s and is a one of a kind creation. *Source*
2. Maxi lounge chair
Kinda looks like these two are sitting on a moon but really it is a slouch couch. “A six-foot diameter curved chair with a highly finished fiberglass shell and an upholstered interior. I’ll admit that it does look comfortable but I’m not sure if two people would actually be able to fit on that comfortably.
1. Meat Chair
Don’t be alarmed, the meat chair isn’t actually made out of meat. Italian artist Simone Racheli had the artistic vision to transform everyday objects into meat. The products are made from plastic, wax, and other materials. They are not being specifically sold so don’t get too excited! *Source*
