When I look at the L5 Spine Bench, I can only picture it in a museum next to other pre-historic fossils. This strange seating fixture looks like the former backbone of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Clearly inspired by the human body, the L5 Spine Bench was designed by Vancouver-based sculptor Marie Khouri. Exhibited at the 2010 IDS West show, this voluminous vertebrae sculpture is made out of lacquered wood and a whole bunch of imagination. Stats for Spectacular Spinal Seating Trending: Older & Average
