Wait, What?: Paintings Of Chairs You Can Actually Sit In

April 18, 2013


This is a series of chair paintings that look like ordinary canvases but are actually made out of an elastic material and have a wooden frame behind them so you can sit IN the painting. They were designed by the Japanese design studio YOY and would be the perfect thing to put in a gallery with a big 'DO NOT TOUCH' sign, then secretly film people who know what's up sitting in them, much to the surprise and confusion of other gallery patrons. Come on, that has shitty viral video written all over it.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots.



Thanks to PYY, who always sits on the sculptures at the museum. Same! Well, fake hump. Take our picture?

    What they need to do is have two paintings that are "sit-able" and one that is not. Then have people sit in the real ones and try and get an unsuspecting patron try to sit in the regular painting.

    When I ask my guests to have a seat (points hand to painting) I bet I'll get a few awkward looks that are just hilarious.
