The DRM Chair Goes into Suicidal Mode Once Sat on a Number of Times

As though on a suicidal mission, the DRM Chair self-destructs after it has been sat on a certain amount of times. Created for the world-wide art and engineering competition known as The Deconstruction, it would be easy to dismiss the fatal thinking behind the DRM Chair as part of the rules and regulations set out by the board. Nevertheless, it raises important questions about existence and purpose, heavy topics for a mere chair.

Designed by a group of ECAL students, the DRM Chair is a simple wooden seat held together by unique joints. Hooked up to a master sensor, as soon as it detects a number of usages, it goes into self-destruction mode. This involves melting the joints until the DRM Chair is just a pile of wood on the ground.
