Some of these chairs I find creative and useful and a great testament to reuse/recyle. Some are just weird. Sometimes a weird chair (or “art” chair or piece of furniture) can really turn a corner of a room into a conversation corner – and not because you sit there to talk. Take a gander at these……
Designed by Amy Schenkelback for Coroflot.com; fully collapsible updated version of the Director’s Chair.
A spiffy new take on the bentwood rocker idea – great for a conference room or very modern dining room. Designed by V. Velikov (Bulgaria).
This chair by Yu Ito (US) is a marvel in design – notice how the arms are just the body pieces rotated – which saves in manufacturing costs.
Made entirely from cardboard this chair, designed by K. Achkov (Bulgaria), is inspired by Frank Gehry’s furniture.
Painting old chairs to update them isn’t a new idea, but this fresh approach encourages us to think outside our paintbox.
Now we enter the “odd” territory. Sorry, but nothing about this looks comfortable or appealing. Looks kinda like a straight jacket.
A little creepy, but definitely fits the “art furniture” category. I’m not sure about the comfort level, but then I don’t think it’s designed for comfort. Looks like it might be a little hard to get up out of – if you don’t mind sitting over those legs! Designed by SAMAL Design (France).
And, finally, for a mere $1400 you too can enjoy this 15″ tall designer chair accessory from designdesign.it (it’s available in a number of finishes ranging from $1000 – $1500)
