Hammering the chair on purpose

The Do Hit chair

The Do Hit chair

While researching mid-century furniture pieces and its style, I came across the Do-Hit Chair by Retro Modern, would be a great.. asset to those who need to take their angst and frustration out once in a while by bashing something.

Designed by van der Poll for Droog, this “chair” is made from stainless steel. It comes to you as a cube. And you get a hammer too. For bashing it into the shape you want as a chair. Not cheap either! $5,088.00

Not a real fav of mine at all!

But I could see this being used in anger management sessions.. or at the teenage counselling centre.

    i’m sure you could my marrakech! i probably could too. it’s sometimes bizarre what people think good design is… and what it should cost. i’m sure to some people being able to bash the life out of something would be very… therapeutic.ads, just so. very very very uncomfortable. i’d have a plush armchair ANY DAY.
