Bulb Chair by Gaëtan Van de Wyer

Now that’s a really interesting piece of furniture. At first you don’t even know what it is, then after analyzing it a little bit you realize it’s actually a chair, a very unique one indeed.

If you are looking for this type of furniture, perhaps you should turn your attention towards rattan furniture. Such furniture is created from cane, which is one of the toughest materials in the world. The Bulb Chair was designed by a Belgian designer, Gaëtan Van de Wyer. The bulb chair features an LED lamp to illuminate your space. As you can see from the pictures the chair is made from sustainable materials, including rattan and water hyacinth. The Bulb Chair measures 88cm w x 107cm d x 178cm h.

Creating a chair that actually has a lamp incorporated in the design is a very clever idea. It makes it the perfect place to enjoy reading a book or just sit there thinking of your problems, meditate or any other activity you might think of. I’m sure that for the user it’s a very comfortable and pleasant piece of furniture, but for the other ones…I don’t know, it looks kind of creepy. I wouldn’t want to come across that image when walking around the house.
