The Anti-Crise Chair Provides a Financial Fall-Back Plan in Emergencies

The Anti-Crise Chair is the sort of seat that really promotes a sense of relaxation, both physically and mentally. It accomplishes the latter in an unconventional way by providing monetary peace of mind.

Pedro Gomes's quirky furnishing doubles as a vault for loose coinage, accepting spare change through a small opening in the top of the backrest. The thickset wooden seat and back support are all one hollow component, affording a great deal of potential space for the slow accumulation of cash.

But if the times get tough and you reach your economic breaking point, you can smash in the glass on the rear of the Anti-Crise Chair. Like an emergency equipment box, it exposes a handsaw. You can use this tool to remove the front end of the seat and dump out all of your petty earnings. As a side perk, the perch is still functional and would thus feature a clever slot for the storage of reading material.
