The seating series “Moody” by the designer Hanna Emelie Ernsting follows the idea that “form follows moods” and consists of three pieces: Moody Couch, Moody Nest and Moody Bag.

Moody Couch kkaarrlls (limited edition) 2011

The origin of the concept is the observation that in the modern world people forget to relax and this is where the Moody series comes in, inviting the user to “express feelings and “let go”. This kind of letting go leaves traces, causing the product to change and adjust to the moods of its user by taking various shapes and forms – the product becomes ‘alive’.

The chair’s functional parts, like the wheels and knobs are left uncovered for easy operation. The chair will be on display at the Tokyo Herman Miller store this summer.

Love Hurts Chair by Jimmie Martin

After discovering the exquisite Jimmie Martin via the Song of Style blog, I went through each and every seating object on their website, and even though I practically fell in love with all of their creations and could come up with enough of words of appreciation for each one of them, this particular piece seemed to be especially deserving of its own post. Now how’s that for an uncomfortable seating with a meaning?
