The meltdown chair is a big ball of polypropylene rope converted into a chair. Part of the ball is singed at high heat to form the bucket that you'll fall asleep in. No additional materials are added to the ultimate product, so it's certainly not your run of the mill seat by any means. The chair was designed by London born designer Tom Price.

Implications - Products that reinterpret familiar objects and turn them into dynamic and creative new pieces definitely have a longer shelf life than those that settle for the status quo and the expected. Companies that commit themselves to exploring new boundaries and pushing expectations ultimately stand out from their competition.
