ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
That looks uncomfortable. One of those folds would go up your butt crack and you may never get out of the chair after that.
/The spell check tells me it’s “butt crack”, not
“buttcrack” – who knew?
#1 has a good point, as well. This chair is a nightmare. All style, no function.
can’t tell from a picture, let your ass be the judge
(hey,just like the rest of the world)
Oh great… it’s a Joseph Beuys work I can sit on.
moon is right… the chair takes Beuys’ originality, adds nothing, and makes it into a dysfunctional commodity.
I cannot stand Joseph Beuys. Not one bit. So this chair is not for me.
My brain Spoonerized the headline, and I thought to myself, “What’s relt?”
That’s rucked up all right.
Maybe I’m wrong, but that doesn’t look strong enough to hold up my ass. Good for lightweights maybe?
Doesn’t it seem like a tiny model? Those rivets look like the kind that hold sets of plans together. You unscrew them with a flat-head screwdriver.
I’ve seen these in person. They’re much sturdier than from what most people are inferring from that photograph. The felt is industrial felt and extremely stiff, plus there’s steel inside of it.
Felt this thick would be a bit hard, me thinks, but a clever design nonetheless.
Getting dropped keys and coins out of that thing would be a total nightmare.
that’s the idea. You harvest the purchase price from visitors
