Could you, even in your widest dream, think of chairs which are shaped in the shape of alphabets? I guess not. But this very thought have been turned into reality by Ana Yago, a Valencia based designer. She is also known as the founder of design house Sanserif Creatius.

These alphabetically shaped chairs created by her, are all covered in fur. The purpose of creating these furry chairs was to showcase them in the Arquitécnica Gallery’s upcoming show, “My chair needs a haircut,” from September 16th to October 12th. The chairs have been made furry keeping in mind the theme of the show. But the alphabetical shape is not the only extraordinary feature of these chairs. The chairs have certain environmental values attached to them. All of these “alphabetical” chairs are made up of 100% biodegradable corrugated cardboards.
If you think these chairs were made keeping children in mind then you are wrong. Apart from having strong environmental values attached to them, the chairs also carry a message for today’s business peoples and that is to combine environmental and social responsibilities into everyday business practices. In order to strengthen that message, the chairs were all assembled in a special environment friendly center.
