If you’re familiar with the original design of IKEA’s Dalfred Stool than you’ll probably be puzzled when seeing this one. It’s the same chair but with a twist. You can find it on IKEA Hackers. It’s basically the original IKEA Dalfred Stool but with a fresh new look. The change consists in a strange addition.
Since the saddle is not one of the most comfortable seating units in the world, or at least that’s what some people say, someone though of incorporating it into the stool’s design. It seems like a strange choice. A stool should be comfortable, not disturbing. Still, those who experienced this chair declared that it’s as smooth as it gets. It’s a crazy and strange design and one would wonder why in the world would someone want to do something like this. Well, some people don’t really need a reason. They just follow their instincts and hope for the best.
And here’s a more detailed description from the developers of this project. In order to obtain this new design, they first had to replace the seat of the Dalfred stool with the Brooks B135 leather bicycle saddle. The saddle is beautiful, brad and bouncy so it seemed like a good choice. They had to grind away some plastic at the top of the mounting post to expose the metal frame of the right diameter and to fix the saddle to it. That”s pretty much it. It was a creative and out-of-the-box idea.
