To The Bone… 3rd Leg Chairs

I didn’t think it possible to make a chair out of bones and make it look completely at home in both modern and more antique-ish interiors…  Yet that is exactly what designer Ama Darko Williams did in her project “3rd Leg”; she produced lovely chairs made of old cow bones which she got from a local butcher, and they look just perfect. The chairs are sustainable, sculptural and bizarre in the best possible way… and even better, they can have quite a bit of weight! I fear they’re not for sale (yet) but hopefully that’ll change soon!

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...

    Yesterday I took a walk through the pseudo-wilderness, man-made-nature-landscape where I’m living and I actually found a cow’s leg (no I don’t make this up!) complete with hoof and skin on the lower half, a sturdy piece of bone protruding from the bloody upper part where it had been ripped off somehow.
    All the rest of the cow was missing, so it had me really wondering about what might have happened on that spot. And I also asked myself: shall I take it home? But I had no idea what to do with it next, so I didn’t. Didn’t get the idea of using it for a chair… Anyway I’m not sure if I would like having such a chair in my room.
