Oct 30 2009I'm Digging It: Anatomical Furniture Designs


This is a sweet furniture ensemble designed by Vladi Rapaport that features a skull chair, brain ottoman and spine lamp. I want them all. And by all I mean just the skull chair. But I want it throne-sized and it needs to shoot flames.

A collection of products inspired by the Dutch "vanitas" still life paintings from the 16th and 17th century. The characteristic type of symbolic still life painting is the one where the symbols of emptiness, time and death were placed on the canvas as a reminder of the vanity of one's earthly life.

Listen, I don't know about Dutch symbolism or whatever but I do know an ottoman I want to kick the hell out of when I see one. And that brain, my dear Watson, is one such ottoman. *kick kick* You like that? You will never build an empire!

Hit the jump for one more shot of the awesome.

the lamp is hawt stuff, and a bit hilarious since it looks like a skele-snake with a vet's cone around it's head.


The snake reference made me giggle after I scrolled back up. Nicely done.

Its looking so cool.Thanks for sharing them.

The lamp looks like a spine funnel, that's pretty cool.

That skull chair looks more like a larynx to me; would be more geeky than freaky, but still anatomy...
