The Malicious Bar Stool, A Stool Inspired By Middle Age ‘Iron Chair’ Torture

 |  |  |  |  |  January 13, 2022

What do you get for the castle owner who already has everything? How about a bar stool inspired by the iron chair torture devices used in the middle ages? You might not want to be around when they open it, though, or they may demand a demonstration – or threaten to throw you in the dungeon if you disagree. Castle owners are always so demanding.

Created by Merve Kahraman, the $3,700 Malicious Bar Stool is topped with 41 CNC-cut rounded aluminum studs finished in gold, which actually withdraw into the leather seat cushion when pressure (read: your butt) is applied. According to Kahraman, this creates “a very pleasantly surprising sensation.” I’m…not sure I want to be the judge of that.

Obviously, you should buy two of the barstools and modify one, so the studs don’t retreat into the cushion. Then have a friend get comfortable sitting on the unmodified version and swap them out when they’re in the restroom. The look on their face when they sit on those spikes! I mean, I can’t think of any better way to spend $7,400.
