Whoa, You Can Actually Sit in This Painting

By Casey Chan on at

My, that painting of that chair looks great. Very regal, very detailed and even very comfortable. How comfortable? So comfortable that you can actually sit inside the painting. Though it looks like any ordinary painting, the artwork is actually a piece of furniture.

The chair is made with wood, aluminium and stretched elastic canvas, and when the painting is leaned against a wall, you can sit on top of the painted cushion. Wouldn't it be great to hang this on your wall for emergency seating?

The chair is a part of a whole series called Canvas and was unveiled at Salon Satellite for Milan Design Week 2013. Designed by Naoki Ono, founder of YOY design studio, I would love to sit in them. See more of Ono's mind melting work here. [Colossal]
