If you happen to be sober when sitting down in this spring-framed chair, you might actually feel a bit intoxicated. A flexible coil has been integrated into the top of each of the four legs, establishing a secure but unstable surface.

Someone who's been drinking, however, might find this dining chair to be quite a comfortable place to sit, given that it can counterbalance any dizzy shifting that takes place. It was this sort of scenario that influenced the creation of this piece, dreamed up while Michael Kushner was observing drunks at the bar.

No matter your state of mind, the Skoki Chair is a striking contemporary piece to behold, with clean white surfaces and sharp metal legs. The bold color of the red springs make the look of it pop – visually, to match its mechanics.
