There is an ambiguity about the Free Falling Chair that allows it to be passed for a sculpture or even a piece of trash. It looks as though a hollow cube of sheet metal fell directly on this design, which isn't too far away from the truth.

Created by professor Ezri Tazari, who teaches at Bezalel Academy for Art & Design when not designing industrial objects, the Free Falling Chair is made out of perforated metal sheets that have been folded in a trapezoidal volume shape. A seated mannequin is then dropped right on top of it to create the perfect mold for a human body. Hence the apt name Free Falling Chair.
