Omri Barzeev's 'Zaza' chair is meant to blend felt and wood together in a harmonious fashion, and for me it does--primarily because it reminds me of a speaker. The conical shape of the seat itself and the joints where the wood meet the felt remind me of a giant version of a home theater speaker.

We've seen a number of innovative furniture designs that use sound and aural cues to help inform their shape. Check out some of my favorites below.
