    20 Chairs You'll Never Own

    Designed for those that want sitting down to be an event, this is a selection of some of the most bizarre chairs of recent times. All bar one is the work of a different designer and although a few of these are concepts most have been available to buy at some point.

    1. The Loopty Loop Loopita by Victor Aleman. Featuring two more loops than your standard Loopita by the same designer.

    2. The Living Lawn Chair by Deger Cengiz was developed with garden-less urbanites in mind.

    3. The Marea Lounge Chair, just 4mm thick at its outer most edge.

    4. If your aim is to project the intimidating boss look then Maximo Riera's "Octopus Chair" may what you are looking for.

    5. 31 legs better than 4, the Funky Blast Chair.

    6. The Cabbage Chair, so-called because it has to be peeled, like a cabbage, it actually has more in common with a roll of kitchen tissues. It was designed by Nendo and is made from waste paper.

    7. Hand Truck Chair by Philippe Peyridieu.

    8. The Empty Chair by Martin Baas, created for Amnesty International.

    9. The Fork and Spoon Chair, $843 from Pop Art Decoration.
