Halloween Seating (1)

Sara Palin Grizzly Bear Chair

Okay, especially for Halloween a bit of horror seating. First of all Sara Palin on her grizzly bear covered couch. Luckily the horror of having her actively engaged in politics seems to be over. Now she can live her own grizzly life;-)

Moody Series by Hanna Emelie Ernsting

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’.
