$15,000 for possibly the ugliest chair ever designed? Why so much? Because the chair walks. No need to ask your robot to rearrange the furniture, just ask your chair to take a hike. The makers went strictly low budget on the looks with the chrome legs and opaque seat, and put their money in the brains of the chair - which you sit on.

Implications - There exists a common misconception that more is better, however, many businesses are finding that consumers appreciate simplicity when it comes to designs. Simple designs tire less quickly in society, and thus, businesses that create products with basic designs represent longevity in the eyes of consumers.
