Extremely Painful Furniture

These awkward yet visually spectacular seats are the product of the wild mind of Helmut Palla. Helmut is part of an exhibition by the name of “Furniture as Trophy” featuring the phenomenon of animal materials in furniture design. These chairs plus a rather wonderful coffee table with antlers make up Palla’s contribution to the show.

The rest of the Furniture as Trophy show can be seen at the Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna through most of the summer into the winter, 2009.

Don’t get your winky crushed!

Your winky has no chance against 100,000 years of rock hard animal brute force! Don’t even try to deny it, alright? These chairs are basically laughing at fate. Fate has a great chance at just an ancient bout of destroying any kind of winky you might have with the perfect weapon of the animal spirits of mother earth.

Designer: Helmut Palla
