New York designer Deger Cengiz has created a chair with an extra support that swings out when the chair is tipped back: Attitude Chair. Made me smile.
Not that this design isn’t cool, but it was also on The Simpsons about 10 years ago so I’m not sure it’s that original.
(I should prob. look at the designer site as he may credit it)
…and didn’t homer “steal” it from Thomas Edison?
haha, i thought of the simpsons as soon as i saw this!
Channel 4 repeated this exact Simpsons episode in the UK last week, good to know it actually works in real life.
Here’s the Wikipedia entry for the very episode: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wizard_of_Evergreen_Terrace
I have to admit I find it hilarious how many people are pointing out a similar chair was on the Simpsons.
I would still want to buy this, though!
according to the source page it’s just an IKEA chair with some crap put on it.
The Simpson’s Meet the Swiss IKEA!
Compare the Attitude Chair to its arch nemesis, Sedley Place’s chair, designed to PREVENT tipping:
Maybe having the untippable chair at school and the Attitude Chair at home would be a good yin-yang balance?
I hope Matt Groening sues the guy!
and here it is… http://www.redbrick.dcu.ie/~elmer/simpsons/homer/sixleggedchair.jpg
yeah, sue him … hehe hehe … sue him
I’m pretty sure that the Shakers made an anti-tipping chair. Can’t find a reference but know I have seen it somewhere. Oh and I remembered that AFTER I remembered the Simpsons episode.
well, it is actually a great idea but as soon as i checked the simpsons episode about that idea that homer “stole” from thomas edison, i thought “damn, someone had already made this”
