August Thonet, reclining couch, model no. 2 chaise longue, 1888. Beech, wicker.
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;-)
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’.

Discovered this pig couch by Philadelphia, USA, based Pavia Burroughs via . Pavia designed it for her senior thesis show.
It was on Etsy, but disappeared there.
