The carbon fiber seat weighs just one kilogram (2.2 pounds).

It was created by making a model of hanging chains and letting gravity determine the shape,

just as Gaudi designed his churches.

For (rich) Europeans only, I guess.
Looks like it might get enfolded within the cheeks of most Big American Butts. Or squashed flat into a big Mercedes logo.

Rob, probably because, based on the looks of it, you'd slight right off.

I was going to say that the method used to produce the chair might be the only gimmicky thing tying it to Gaudi because there is absolutely nothing, Gaudi-ish about this stool. And I agree with Tim, it is outrageously overpriced.

hmmm, why isn't Mr. Geenen sitting on it?

Hey, if I was the designer, I'd be really happy if I could get someone to pay me $5,700 for $25 worth of carbon fiber popped out of a mold too!
