Design – Happy Halloween! Studio Drift, studio Pool and more have created ghostly seatings tuning with the mood of the quirkiest eve of the year. We picked 6 spooky chairs with a tongue in cheek attitude. 

The Ghost of a Chair by Valentina Gonzalez Wohlers

Valentina Gonzalez Wohlers designed The Ghost of a Chair. It could be a Louis chair forgotten in an attic with a faint sheet draped gently over. The chair itself isn’t there, it’s just a memory revealed only by partly transparent, solid and immaterial and polyester sheet which falls over its soft curves and stylish armrest, reaching the floor with beautiful pleats.

Studio Drift’s Ghost chairs and stools collection is haunted by an ethereal soul trapped into transparent acrylic. “We wanted to highlight the contrast between an endless freely floating airiness that is captured in a tightly limiting rigid form”. The inner shapes were created using a unique 3D-technique to form subsurface drawings inside the solid acrylic at this large scale, giving them their dualistic character.

Parisian-based  studio Pool has reinterpreted the emblematic monoblock chair with a fiberglass skull-shaped design named Souviens toi que tu vas mourir – ‘Remember that you will die’ in French. “The skull acts as a leitmotiv for those who seek the comfort of a chair and the ceremonial act of being seated”.

Charlotte Kingsnorth has designed Hybreed, a collection of seats with fleshy biomorphic upholstery. Each curvaceous creature has been sculpted into a unique character depending on the frame it envelops. The bulging alterations are meant to represent the rolls of flesh on each chair’s obese owner.

Spanish artist Maximo Rieira has created a collection of monstrous animal chairs including one with a large octopus merging with the seat. “The series looks to bring life to the basic function of the object, making it more present”. The collection includes also a rhino, a walrus a whale tail and beetle-shaped seat.

Have a seat, lean back and relax, you are among friends – they would never stab you in the back. Austrian architect and designer Martin Mostböck, arose from a reaction to a colourful expression used in his native Vienna for this tongue-in-cheek design.
