‘Sitzmuster des Todes’ is a Swedish single serving site devoted to cataloging the ugliest patterns printed on the seats of public transportation worldwide. Many Swedish products are revered for their clean and minimal aesthetics, so it is no surprise that this website was created to show the complete opposite of these kinds of designs. The website even has a “Hall of Death,” which ranks the worst patterns from around the world.

The outrageous rainbow-colored seats are reminiscent of the the loudly patterned carpets used in casinos and serve a similar purpose; just as the energetic flooring choices in casinos are designed to encourage gambling, the more outrageous the pattern on the seats of public transit, the less likely you are to notice stains and markings left behind.
