13 Really Funky and Weird Chair Designs
In this article, I will present to you 13 most weirdest chairs you have ever seen. So, let’s forget a second about the “chair” function which considers intended usage and ergonomics, and take a look at chairs purely from an artistic point of view. The evolution during thousands of years it’s not something particular just to human raise, chairs have evolved tremendously too.
1. The AOL Throne
The first on our list is the AOL Throne, and its structure is based on CDs. The seat is made of more than 300 CDs that rests on a 3/8″ inch thick sheet of plywood, and the arms also consist of CDs that are carefully glued together to form 1″ thick bars. Because the CDs are very fragile, the arm rests are reinforced with a thin steel bar.
2. The Fully Loaded Chair
This unusual chair is made up of over 450 .12 gauge shotgun shells, and we can agree that it comes Fully Loaded. The back of the chair creates a stark contrast while the front creates an intense array of plastic arterial sections due to its red hulls protruding outward. This chair succeeds to combine both the furniture and objects of weaponry, creating a powerful allure.[Via yankodesign]
3. The Tank Chair
This is more than just a chair, a custom off-road wheelchair that can go outdoors. No matter if outside it’s streams, mud, snow, sand or gravel, the Tank chair will take you anywhere into the nature.
4. The Chaise Lawn Chair
How would you like to sit on a grass chair, to feel the pleasure of lying on soft grass. Well, designer Deger Cengiz thought about that and created the Chaise Lawn Chair, a mix between an alive lounge chair, mobile planter and a human transporter.
5. The Sheep chair
This is simply the most curious piece of home furnishing I have ever seen. It looks like it might be comfortable in a unnerving way and would definitely be a conservation piece as long as PETA doesn’t come knocking on your door at the time.
6. The Brickchair by Pepe Heykoop
The next on our post is a chair created from childrens’ toy building blocks. It represents the interpretation of a drawing that was already an interpretation of an existing chair of James Gulliver Hancock.
7. The Meat Chair by David Ponce
The next chair is kind of gross, some of you may think. It could fit very well in a horror movie, the “Silence of the lambs” was the first thing that came into my mind. Is still a piece of art, for sure not the kind of art we’re seeing everyday. The Meat chair is made from plastic, wax and other materials.
8. Dalmatian & Hot Pink High Heel Shoe Chair
Don’t know what present to buy for someone you love or maybe for yourself? The Dalmatian chair is a high quality chair made from solid wooden frame upholstered with high quality vibrant hot pink velvet and fuzzy Dalmatian velvet fabrics. This chair is hand made in the USA.
9. Natural Crystal Chair
This Crystal Chair called “Venus” has been designed by Japanese artist Tokujin Yoshioka and is a beautiful example of sustainable design. “Venus” was born out of the laws of nature, because it was crystallized over time by submerging a polyester elastomer chair skeleton in an aquarium.[Via casasugar]
10. Decorative Stuffed Animal Chairs By Campana Studio
The concept idea of these chairs was based on the familiar stuffed animals, and as you can see they are line drawings of the animals attached to the Banquete Chairs. The aim of the designer was to create things out of common objects and materials.
11. Mommy’s Chairs
The next image seems to be a simple child’s drawing, but actually there are pieces of furniture designed by artist Lucy Merchant. The Mommy’s Chairs have been designed based on a child’s drawing and is made of powder coated steel rods, being suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
12. Pencil Furniture
The Pencil Furniture has been designed by German artist Kerstin Schulz, and was made exclusively for faber-castell, using thousands of sharpened ‘castell 9000′ pencils. We have to approve it’s quite incredible, but i would definitely don’t want to sit on.
13. Devil’s throne
The Devil’s armchair has been designed by Anthony Redmile, and represents a conflation of taurean spirituality and devil worship. It has a 1960s look being made from malachite, bone, horn, and wood. So, if you’re planning to be the master of the dark place, here’s something you can thing about.[Via boingboing]
