This Chair Will Self-Destruct After Eight Uses

by Hazel Chua

Have you ever sat on a chair that seemingly looked sturdy, but eventually gave way under your butt? I have, and let me tell you, while it sounds funny, it’s extremely painful (and embarrassing!) Unfortunately, we only have the chair to blame… or don’t we?

I would say that would be true in most cases, except for the DRM chair. It doesn’t look particularly special – in fact, it looks pretty plain and poorly made, even. But what makes it different is the fact that it self-destructs after eight ‘sits’ or eight uses, whatever you want to call it. It’s fitted with a small sensor that keeps track of how many times it has been sat on. When the counter hits zero, the chair’s structural joints melt down and it essentially falls apart. Watch it in action in the video below:

The chair was made by a group of ECAL students for the worldwide art and engineering competition The Deconstruction.
