There are some inventors out there that have a different view on the world, and how we live in it. It’s because of those inventors that we constantly see new and exciting things in our stores every year. I have always found it interesting to see what can be done with things that already exist. We’ve seen it over and over again, and the examples are too many to mention here. However, what can really be done with a chair that would make its uses even more interesting? It turns out, there is a lot you can do with a chair actually. You just have to have a little bit of imagination and playfulness, and you will probably be able to come up with a list of things.
That’s exactly what designer Noga Berman did when rethinking the concept of a chair. I am not exactly sure why and for what purpose this chair even exists, but I like it. I don’t like it so much for its looks or creepy uses but for the imagination put into play when creating it. It’s rather interesting to combine a chair and some strings. Furthermore it adds storage space, and if it turns, it becomes a sheltered sleeping “bag” of some kind.
I am sure there are a million uses beyond the ones that are obvious with this chair, and that’s what I like about it. It pokes fun at the usefulness and randomness of itself, while still sitting there being as simple as it is. I have to admit though, it feels like something out of Ghostbusters when arms starts appearing out of it like it was possessed by something. See, there is yet another use for it. Use it to scare the crap out of someone on Halloween, and I am sure you will get a memory worth saving. Even though it’s weird, creepy and odd, I totally like it. It’s impressive imagination in design. That’s what I would call it.
