It’s a seat with a surprise: designers at Mathery Studio have created Josie, a beechwood chair that pops colourful confetti the moment you sit down. Inspired by the geeky high school movie, “Never Been Kissed”, who gets stood up by her prom date. “Josie was born from the idea of empathizing with a moment – the action of seating,” the team explains on their site.
The act of seating is no longer a passive state that deprives a person of fun and enjoyment, but instead it is evaluated as a personal triumph. Even if you don’t feel like partying you shouldn’t worry anymore, as with Josie the party will always come to you.
“Driven by the need to restore a WOW effect and sense of occasion, Josie celebrates the person who is seated and moreover, celebrates design.”
