Frankenstein Chair

Frankenstein Chair

There is that Swiss designer who coined his chair “Frankenstein Chair“, but otherwise, like me, you might ask: “What in heaven’s name has Frankenstein to do with a chair?”
That was until I found the Blog Frankensteinia which explains it quite simple: During long days of filming, the movie stars who are in heavy outfits, have to have a space to rest without cluttering their outfit or being bothered by it. Such chair kept Boris Karloff while resting backstage on the set of the Son of Frankenstein in 1939.
