Animal Hybrid Chairs Turn Humans Into Mythical Creatures


Merve Kahraman‘s Hybrid chairs let you take a walk – or should that be a rest? – on the wild side. The handmade chairs are based on the myths of human-animal hybrids, hence the name.

When sitting in one of the chairs, a person becomes not merely a reclining human figure, but something slightly more magical. The animal parts protruding from the chairs’ tops give resting humans a mythological quality, turning them into dynamic combination creatures.

Being handmade of natural leather and wood, the chairs’ materials further reinforce their connection to nature…or para-nature, at least.
