Many creatives get stuck inside of the box when dreaming up new designs for everyday objects. The malleable mind behind this concept for the Aqua Lounge Chair is certainly not one suffering from a lack of imagination.

Before arriving at these final computer renderings of this truly peculiar recliner, Pouyan Mokhtarani came up with the idea of a fictional sea creature which would influence the unearthly aesthetic of the piece of furniture. When viewed head-on, you can discern a pair of curious pockets beneath the arms of the plushy red perch. These reference a set of gills that form the essential anatomy for the marine beast's breathing.

The Aqua Lounge Chair embodies an elegant fluid shape and, with its sinuous physical complexities, it seems to fit with the otherwordly look of oceanic animals.
