London-based designer Charlotte Kingsnorth designed this fat chairs, entitled Hybreed. The chairs are one-off pieces made up of upholstering reclaimed chair frames with bulging upholstery. Designed specifically to represent the rolls of flesh on chair’s obese owner, the seatings were presented from 23-26 September as part of the London Design Festival.
This interestingly hilarious concept is definitely worth checking out in the featured gallery.
The series is a development of Kingsnorth’s graduation project from 2009, entitled At One.
