According to InventorSpot, the Belgian surrealist painter René François-Ghislain Magritte once said that he despised advertising and decorative furniture. This chair, inspired by the 'Son of Man' painting, is from Chilean architect and all-around creative good egg Roberto Sebastian Matta. It looks so good that you would never want to sit in it.
