These Balloon Chairs Won't Pop When You Sit on Them

New, 1 comment

South Korean designer Seung Jin Yang created this collection of chairs and stools out of inflatable rubber balloons (no kidding, right?) but despite how they look, they are apparently strong enough to hold the weight of a person, due to being coated in eight layers of epoxy resin. "They are not soft or comfortable, but they have stability when people sit on them," Yang said, really going for the hard sell. All of that checks out when you see a picture of somebody actually sitting on one of the stools.

Yup, that is the face of a man who is sitting on a stable stool that is neither soft nor comfortable.
