Has a chair ever made you smile?


If Form only followed Function, imagine how boring life would be. The Exploded Chair ushers in a new age for Design, an age of Form following Expression! Functionally still a chair, the Exploded Chair is a visual break-down of the very idea of the chair. Taking a wooden chair and splitting it into its various parts, and then putting those parts into separate acrylic boxes (paying homage to products and their exploded views), the Exploded Chair is hilariously creative and does what good art or design aims to do best… Just make the world a slightly happier place to be in!

Side Note: If the designer’s reading this, a sticker on the chair that reads “In case of seating emergency, break glass and assemble chair” would make this piece worthy of inclusion in the MoMA Gallery!
