For those wanting to sit on unexpected places, the designers at Fashion Architecture Taste (FAT) created a piece of furniture that honors Greek gods like Hercules. Although Hercules is the strongest God in Greek mythology, this stool is soft like a piece of foam rubber to keep your back cushioned and comfy.
This practical head is both a sculpture and a fun home decor accessory. The creators from FAT explains, “The bust of Hercules, usually something solid both in its material and the culture it represents becomes unexpectedly soft, deforming a recognizable object into stranger shapes when it is sat on.” This ironic design is about history and pleasure: the perfect combination to enjoy a good conversation while taking a relaxing seated break.
The environmental design studio Fashion Architecture Taste has the perfect gift for this holiday.
