revol design: 'screw chair'

sitting on a bed of nails is not likely the most comfortable thing, but what about a bed of screws? well revol-design has built such a chair and claims that it is surprisingly comfortable. their aptly named ‘screw chair’ luckily has the sharp end of the screw embedded into scraps of douglas fir wood. the pile of wood scraps form the base of the chair, while the seat and backrest is covered in a sheet of screws. the chair uses a total of 3,726 drywall screws arranged in a neat grid. while we are sure the chair wouldn’t hurt as much as a bed of nails, we will have to trust the designers when they claim it’s comfortable.

  • Yeah, the guy in the chair looks really comfortable. Especially the way his arm is hanging on the corner of a block of wood, and the way he looks really unhappy.
