I’ve heard of a tennis table, but a chair?
Designed by Virginia Tech architectural student Will Holman, Will started designing cardboard furniture but has since bounced into using more permanent materials to create functional, quirky art for the home. Currently fixated on tennis balls, this is the result of a recent modification on a standard office chair. He replaced the seat cushions with a quality, 1/4″ thick, laser-cut, piece of oak veneer plywood over an MDF substrate. Both cushions have 25 tennis balls contoured to fit the body, making for a comfortable sit. You can find Will Holman offering a few of his other quirky creations in his WHolman etsy store. The chair shown above is $275.-
