Inception Chair Within A Chair Within A Chair...

May 19, 2011


I wasn't allowed to watch Inception (NOT Conception, which is how you were accidentally made) because my mom said it would be far too complicated for me to understand and might make me unstable, but I did like the previews they showed on TV. I'm also into skin-care commercials. Tampon and feminine vajay spray ones I could do without. This is the Inception Chair created by designer Vivian Chiu.

Taking the chair archetype and placing within it chairs that are progressively smaller. Each chair has hand cut grooves on the inside edges of its seat frame as well as notches in the seat back. These grooves range from 1/2" wide to 1/8" wide. The mechanism works so that the pegs fit into the grooves of the chair one size bigger and slides into place so that the horizontal edge between the chair seat and back line up. The simple mechanism allows the chairs to be taken apart and put together with ease.

God, I'm not trying to build one, Vivian. You could've just said something about how the smallest chair is perfect for when your Smurf friends come to visit. Not really though because once all the chairs are removed none of them have an actual seat bottom to rest your buttcheeks on. Unless you got really big ol' buttcheeks, in which case you might be able to sit on the side rails. Also, in two bus seats at once. Hey -- I'm not here to judge, I'm here to laugh out loud if you fart.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots, including one of all the chairs apart having an orgy or sumpthin'.

Thanks to GW's Hero (you really are is the thing), pat and Shoe Stopper, who only go see movies to make out in the back. I thought I saw you all back there during 'Julie and Julia'!
