Bashko Trybek is a Polish designer (in production by Paris-based Outdoorz Gallery) is composed of hundreds of re-arrangeable stress balls which, much like Pally by Laura Väinölä that we featured earlier, let you create countless patterns for the seat (and back!). It is also probably more comfortable than the Tennis Balls Chair by Remy and Veenhuizen Guido posted about a while back.
Produced in a large (240 ball) ‘low chair’ and a small (128 ball) model, the chair itself consists of a steel wire grid powder-coated in a range of colours. users place stress balls in each of the spaces of the wire frame, arranging them as desired into stripes, motifs, or patterns. The colours of stress balls were selected as magenta, cyan, yellow, black, and white to match the printing raster, turning the entire piece into a playful and interactive interpretation of printing pixels.

Having seen the skull chair by Pool being received by you so well, I was reminded of this other skull themed chair I came across a few years back and kept a photo of saved on my computer. Let me introduce you to the Skullduggery chair by Georgina Brett Chinnery who designs for her own “interior couture” firm Bombarock in the UK.
Initially working in fabrics using skull prints and experimenting with textural applications, Georgina exhibited her ‘Skullduggery’ chair at the 2006 London Design Festival. At London Design Festival 2008 Georgina showed her signature style of upholstery using skulls and tattoo roses. The new collection of decorative leather furniture, showing a more artisan approach to her work will be exhibited in May 2011 at Collect.
