Skull Armchair is an ominously powerful looking piece of furniture by French designer Harold Sangouard, that seems fit for anyone interested in comfort as they plot sinister moves.
Consisting of a black gloss resin exterior sitting atop a steel internal frame, the Skull Chair is a geometric, stylized take on the human skull. More than just a unique design, the chair features plush foam cushioning covered in luxurious black velvet.
Somewhere between sculptural art and functioning furniture, the armchair is a seat that is as much a cushioned resting point as it is a spectacle to be admired. There is a dramatic appeal to the big reveal in the back of the armchair, similar to the design of Maximo Riera’s animal chairs.
As far as design and execution goes, this is great. I’d be an evil genius if that meant sitting on the chair, but I woefully lack that talent. The chair is available for purchase, with prices available on request at Harold Sangouard’s website.
