If, like Benjamin Rollins Caldwell of BRC design, you’re able to get Lady Gaga posing in your chair, you are doing a fine PR job.
The surface of the chair is completely covered with a collage of motherboards, computer chips, lcd screens and hard drive disks held in place by sheet metal screws. The chair also has an interactive quality as the hard drive disks can be spun, the telephone keys and other buttons can be pressed, and the antennae raised and adjusted.
Like a print or a painting you can hang these “Chairs” from a wall. They come in 3 variants: Chair, Sofa and stool. They were featured at Milan 2013. To seat you have to take them down and have them leaning against a wall.
