A company created special human skin chairs and footrests so that consumers should feel comfortable in their skin.
Designer Gigi Barker of the United Kingdom, has spent a considerable amount of time trying to replicate the exact feel of human flesh with her collection of chairs and footrests.
Sitting in one of these chairs is intended to make you feel as if you are perched on top of the stomach of an obese man.
The chairs and footrests were created as part of a project called “A Body of Skin,” where she studied skin texture and body shape.
The fabric is pheromone-impregnated silicone base, which recreates the texture of human flesh and smells like aftershave. Barker believes that when a customer’s skin comes into contact with the chair, a bond will form.
The chair and the footrest cost about $4,000.
