This furniture experiment by designer Nikolas Bentel does not only put into question the human body's versatility, it also explores the intricate process of creating pieces for interior spaces. From facing down on your hands and knees and forming a chair to acting as a steady coat rack, the furniture experiment "gauges how difficult [it is] to design a range, [starting with the] initial sketches [and ending with] filing a patent."

The quirky project, which is dubbed the 'Corpus Collection,' situates Nikolas Bentel in the role of furniture and harnesses the corporeal self to understand "what everyday objects need to go through." More of an art piece than anything else, Nikolas Bentel aims to "prove a point."
