Do Hit Chair

Created by designer Marijn Van der Poll (above, demonstrating in his Eindhoven workshop how to shape it perfectly) for Droog Design, it cost $6,000 when released in 2007.

It's now $9,750.

Wrote Tim McKeough in the April 2010 issue of Wired magazine, "The potential perch arrives as a perfect stainless steel box; you bash your own seat into it with the included long-handled hammer. 'I make a cube,' Van der Poll says, 'then you create a chair.'"

It measures 39.3" x 29.5" x 27.5" (unbashed).

Which means it's not a cube but, rather, a parallelepiped.

I wish I'd thought of that.
Wasn't it Leonardo or Michelangelo or one of those guys who said that when you're carving a lion out of marble you just cut away the part that doesn't look like lion? Well, how about if I sold big huge blocks of super-sturdy styrofoam & included a special carving knife, and in a reverse think, just told people to make themselves a nice chair by cutting away the part that looks like ass? For an extra thousand I'd include a couple bottles of acrylic paint & some brushes to get a really custom look.

I can't wait to put my jammies on and snuggle up to watch a flick.

so they send you a metal box and you got to make your own chair, and they charge you best part of ten grand for the pleasure. Someone's laughing!
