There's no end to the types of nerdy furnishings on the market today, but the Brain + Microchip ottomans and table take on different forms to the norm. Instead of magnifying a Nintendo console or assuming a finish complete with video game characters, this living room set has an ever so slightly more tasteful aesthetic.

The coffee table itself is essentially a giant computer chip, stripped of all of the fussy details and molded into a minimalistic form in smooth black supported by a series of shiny metal legs. The stools, on the other hand, represent animal intelligence, physically resembling enlarged human brains in either solid white or black. Created by Daniel Rohr, Brain + Microchip brings new meaning to the concept of smart design.
