nunoerin‘s love handles chair is a full-figured lounge chair design prompted about by examining the hidden curves of our bodies. it features an interactive finish that shifts color in response to body heat. sitting on the chair will activate the piece’s color-changing properties and leave behind temporary prints of the body in unexpected new colors. love handles chair is available in several thermo-sensitive and solid color finishes for residential and commercial spaces. this lounge furniture is produced in mississippi, USA.

  • this is interesting! I don’t know if it looks very comfy though, it actually looks quite solid!

    blueberrysherbet says:
  • i really want this

    zuma says:
  • this is the ugliest, most unecessary and most poorly designed piece of furniture I have ever seen.

    kent gration says:
  • if this piece is ‘unnecessary’ then surely, given the vast number of chairs available to the consumer, any other new design would also be ‘unnecessary.’ I hope this is not the case, as there are so many great new designs. Sadly I don’t think this is one of them.

    Damien Hipwell says:
  • what happens when you spill your coffee on it?…and who wants to sit on someone else’s “hot spots”?

    banjo says:
  • This is so cool. And hot. I love the new age whoopy cushion. It looks so comfortable too
