Hybrid No1 by Merve Kahraman

HYBRID is the “animalistic” collection by Merve Kahraman where a chair unites with its owner, merging into one. Hybrid No1 is an armchair with horns – it’s handmade and available in different types and colors of leather.

Merve Kahraman (born in 1987) studied Interior Design at the Istituto Europeo di Design(Milan/Italy) before moving to London. Since graduating, she has worked in several architecture and design studios in Istanbul, New York and London. Her decision to specialize in industrial design stems from her desire to include furniture and products as an integral part of her designs for spaces. Currently, she is continuing her masters education in Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (London/UK) and working on her own industrial design projects.

Zjedzony: Banana Chair by WamHouse, Peeled and Eaten

Zjedzony (“eaten” in Polish) armchair by WamHouse is a banana-shaped seat in which the “peel” is used as armrests. The chair could look really interesting if put in some minimalistic and “serious” looking surroundings – makes me think of a well lit clean-shaped living room finished in white and grays with little pops of color. Something tells me a Zjedzony placed in a room like that might as well make one miss the “banana point” at first, and not because the chair is not remarkable, for it definitely is, but exactly because the design is not excessive, only subtly humorous and not comical at all.

And if the chair itself wasn’t fun enough, check out this awesome promo image too:

A collaboration between Nienke Klunder and Jaime Hayon back in 2009, this giant purple rocking sausage chair is made in an edition of only 8 – as seen on Design Milk. Thoughts? I’m wondering if it’s sold out by now.
