Chair Ssstoell Might Just Give You Vertigo
September 12th, 2012
I’ve seen a lot of chairs in my lifetime, and none of them are as dizzying or puzzling as the Chair Ssstoell. Even its name is complicated right from the get-go.
It looks unstable and confusing. And from another angle, it looks like it’s comprised of three chairs that have been stacked one on top of the other, but from another, you can see that it’s actually just one chair.
Here’s a fun fact: ‘stoel’ is actually Dutch for ‘chair.’ Seeing as this one is sort of like three chairs in one, the triple ‘S’ they used for the ‘ssstoel’ part of the name is actually quite fitting.
The Chair Ssstoel was designed by Voortman and Girod. It’s also for sale, too, although it’s crazy expensive at $1,320 (USD – plus $157 for international shipping.) For that price, you could certainly buy three of your own chairs, stack them on top of each other, and put the other $1,000 back in your pocket.
