This odd, ultra-modern chair, dubbed the “Origine Du Monde, Maybe!” chair, was designed by Italo Rota for Italian furniture firm Meritalia. It’s a chair that transports “creature comforts” to your living room. The gentle tones wonderfully complement the comfy cushions, creating what the designer refers to as “uterine sensuality.” Memory foam is used to make the pillows, which reminds us of safety, rest, and the future in keeping with the design’s maternal motif. The base is composed of polished aluminium and is uneven in shape, much like the entire chair design. This is a must-see for everyone who likes one-of-a-kind items.
