furnathon '07 begins

Animal Collection
Forget a plaid couch and standard table sizes, this is the fantastical to be enjoyed as a part of everyday life. The animals would be rendered in any number of materials suited to the function-foam, wood, metal, plastic. The idea is meant to challenge our understanding of standard furniture design and to incorporate a symbolic note of the natural. Why can't we climb up to sit on 20' giraffe couch?

  1. i am disturbed and intrigued at the same time. I am reminded of my cousin who liked to hunt and kill exotic African animals and hang them on his wall... specifically the huge giraffe head + neck that he had, along with the head of an elephant.

    anyways that said... i think it'd be damn cool to sit on a 20' giraffe couch or dine around a rhino... i think you should approach urban outfitters, I could very much imagine them selling this sort of design.
