Taking a load off is a much happier occasion thanks to the subtle smile carved into the Satoshi Ohtaki Luukku chair.

Made from ash wood, the chair is flexible and the seat portion is composed of several planks that bend and flex to cushion the sitter's behind when they sit down. A sturdy lower plank rests under the pliable seat to ensure that anyone who gets too overzealous and bobs up and down too much will not fall right through the chair and end up on the ground.

A slight happy face is visible where the spring-board like cushion and its support plank meet and the mouth of the face opens wider or closes shut depending on the amount of pressure put on the cushioned planks.
