Inception Chair: Wonderful 10-in-1 Wooden Nesting Chairs

Somewhere between crafty clown cars and artistic Russian nesting dolls sits this uncanny series of seats, each one slotted into the next, titled after a film that probes the depths of the human mind and dizzies us through a ride down into the subconscious.

Vivian Chiu has a notable fondness for abstract patterns, recursive series and other places where physics and math intersect art and design, evidenced by this carefully planned and handcrafted piece.

While the little ones may be a tad small for people to actually sit in, the set taken as a whole is actually stable in structure and able to support human weight (whether comfortable is another question).

“The mechanism works so that the pegs fit into the grooves of the chair one size bigger and slides into place so that the horizontal edge between the chair seat and back line up. The simple mechanism allows the chairs to be taken apart and put together with ease.”
