Your booty will be anything but crabby when it sits upon “The Hermit Crab Chair” by designer Joseph Kim. No way, says I, only happiness will be felt by your bottom relaxing in such a situation. In the same way nature’s hermit crab abandons its shell each time it needs a larger one, so too does mankind abandon its wares. But Joseph Kim is a reclaimer. Thus, these chairs are created of man’s leavings: used tires and ceramic. It’s eco-harmony. One one ceramic injection mold is used in the process of creating these chairs in order to keep waste to a minimum and efficiency high. Where do the recycled tires go? Well they’re the legs, of course. And it’s foldable! And the surface area is maximized! Such an engineering masterpiece. Wobble around to your heart’s content on the tire of your choosing! You’ll be twice as satisfied as you’ll have ever felt before while sitting in this fantastic chair as you’ll know that you share the world as the hermit crab does. That’s a great feeling. Feel it and totally relax. That is, until you outgrow the chair. Then you’ll have to get another bigger one!source
