I swear some of the best stuff we’ve posted here at technabob has originated from someone’s Coroflot portfolio. In this case, it’s Mexican industrial designer Gabriel Cañas’ Tetris Chair, which is so amazingly gaudy that only Willy Wonka could ever hope to love it.
And geeks like me.
Unfortunately, the Tetris Chair remains Gabriel’s baby for the moment, and is not readily available for purchase. According to the description on his Coroflot portfolio, the chair is comprised of five of the seven tetrominoes pieces from Tetris. Each three-dimensional block is a fiber glass unit that, loosely translated, “results in a light, showy, and resistant product.”
As I type this post, my arse is firmly planted on an exceedingly comfortable (and equally expensive) desk chair that I’ve grown quite accustomed to. I’m not sure I could go back to slummin’ it on hard surfaces, which is what blocks of fiber glass sound like, to me. Still, there would be a certain appropriateness to having my designated gaming chair be made up of Tetris blocks. It would be almost poetic.
