Unexpectedly Intriguing!

Halloween Chair Markets are places where people who create solutions can seek and find individuals who are searching for solutions. The act of marketing then serves a highly important role: it helps people find the solutions to problems that they might not have known they had, or perhaps more accurately, allows them to solve problems they haven't well defined.

The best part of that process is that the solutions that exist can inspire entirely new solutions, sparking positive feedback cycle where the only limits are those of human creativity.

To that end, and in celebration of Halloween this year, we've identified several solutions that a number of designers might argue satisfy a deep human need to sit on things that scare them. First up, if you're considering dressing up in a costume for a Halloween party this year, why shouldn't your furniture join in the fun? Designer Hongtao Zhao has created a costume for chairs (see above right.)

Tofu Chair But perhaps that solution doesn't push the limits far enough to really satisfy your need to sit on something scary. Perhaps then you might consider a design created by Yu-Ying Wu called the "Breathing Chair," which was inspired by the structure of plant cells in tofu. Just imagine the experience of sitting on what appears to be a rectangular block that deforms to envelop your body when you sit on the area with the largest open spaces. Then recall that you're sitting on something inspired by tofu. Pretty chilling....

SuperFoam Chair Not scary enough? Okay then, perhaps student designer Rich Gilbert's SuperFoam chair concept is for you. Admittedly, this is more due to the lighting effect that makes the chair appear to provide the kind of moist, goo-laden descent into some alien digestive process sitting experience that you might secretly desire, but still, you have to admit it's pretty scary looking!

It all rather puts the Picasso-inspired furniture we previously featured to shame!
