Presumably inspired by the tangle of cords under my desk, the Entropy Chair created by Phillips’ Collection doesn’t look like a chair at all, just a cube of randomly strung wires. Those wires have actually been carefully placed to create a seat. How about that! Plus it’s only $1,800. The stainless steel chair measures a near-perfect 29″ x 30″ x 30″ cube and, according to the product website, “Is perfect for contemporary interiors and rooms with an industrial chic vibe. It’s also perfect for people with $1,800 to spend on a chair that looks like it was spun by a giant spider.
Will I be buying one? Probably not, but I will be making my own and trying to sell them online for half the price. Will I sell any? I suppose that depends on willing people are to spend $900 on an Entropy Chair that’s so entropic it’s not even a chair anymore, just a pile of rusty metal bars and tangled USB cables.
