The Chair for Dali is a set of two rubber chairs created by Japanese designer Kei Harada. The chairs are made almost entirely of rubber -- one is made of 70 percent rubber and the other 90 percent -- and are inspired by the work of American portrait photographer Philippe Halsman.
The specific Halsman piece that inspired the Chair for Dali series is called 'Dali Atomicus.' Dali Atomicus shows the famous Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dali in a chaotic scene featuring flying cats, water and of course, a chair. The rubber chairs are designed to bend with the sitter, allowing for more fluid movement. The chair with the circular back is the most flexible of all; its legs don't require any support and can freely bend and twist.
