Object O is an interesting seating option that many might mistake for an interactive art installation. In a way, it does inspire reflection as such an installation would. That is because it has a globular extension that secludes the sitter from the rest of the world. By doing so, Object O ensures that individuals are able to gain private moments in the hectic world called life.

Designed by Korean designer Song Seung-Yong, the Object O chair is inspired by iconic Chinese lanterns. It is made out of white birch and Korean paper. What makes Object O stand out even more is the fact that it acts as a large lantern since it boasts a built-in light.
