Michael Wolk is not only the designer of these strong standing chairs, but he is also the go-to designer for Donald Trump's hotels in Florida.

These chair constructions are unique in their design, as they feature a man as one of the chair legs. Just like the Greek Titan God, Atlas, the man looks like he is holding the chair on his shoulders.

Implications - Designers are constantly pushing the limits and finding novel ways to engineer common products. It isn't so much the functionality, but the novelty of a product's uniqueness that appeals to consumers. Industries looking to generate interest in their products need only to add a refreshing gimmick to their wares.
