Skinterior Stools Are the Size Zero of Seating

I manage to both love and hate these stools. They are by Dutch designer Chris Bartels who took his inspiration from too-thin haute couture models, hence the title 'skinterior.' To do this he concentrates on representing the clothing (upholstery) not the model (structure).

This explains their rather bent out of shape, lopsided structure. However, despite this they are impressively strong and can be used as you would any other piece of furniture.

Implications - My mixed emotions for these stools helps to prove just how interesting they really are. It's hard to say anything negative about them because they really are totally inventive!
