The Monster Chair by Jinyoung Choi
Do you like the scary stories?
Most of the people do. They find them interesting and they are usually preferred by children.
This is not a scary story but it looks like a scary piece of furniture. The hole looks like a monster’s big mouth, ready to swallow everything that appears in front of it.
The short legs make you think of a little monster, maybe of an insect. The black colour also makes you think of an evil thing.But, it is an interesting piece of furniture and besides its practical use, as a place to seat it may also become a place to deposit things. For example, you may use it as a tiny table, with two places where you can put some books, magazines or the “mouth” of the monster may be an excellent bed for your favourite little pet, but we do not think of feeding the monster, do we?
It’s a very practical chair that the designer Jinyoung Choi thought of “making two dimensional seat to weighty mass”.
