The pop art-inspired Tongue-in-Cheek chair by Peter Harvey is so graphic one might almost be too squeamish to sit on it. This sculptural celebration of the tongue really captures the essence of the mouth-inhabiting muscle.

The Tongue-in-Cheek chair is made from UV resistant glass reinforced plastic with a polyester gel coat. It is supported by a polished stainless steel ($6,000) or chrome base ($5,420).

Implications - In a consumer world where products, ideas and innovations can often seem repeated or exhausted, truly unusual products such as these tongue-shaped chairs can satisfy the consumer need for novelty. Companies that can provide consumers with high-end, unconventional products will appeal to consumers who find comfort and/or relief in owning truly original products that other individuals cannot afford.
