At first glance the aesthetic value of this furry alphabet seat is somewhat questionable. But when you put this fuzzy little stool in the context of Arquitécnica Gallery’s upcoming show, “My cHair needs a haircut,” where the chair will be displayed from September 16th-October 12th, one can begin to appreciate the playful and almost satirical elements of the design.

From materials to production and assembly, Ana Yago, the Valencia-based designer who started Sanserif Creatius, the studio behind the hair chair, has considered the environment every step of the way. The chair is made of 100% biodegradable corrugated cardboard and is assembled exclusively in a special employment center that reinforces ethical business practices that consider both environmental and social responsibility.
