Fury! by Roel-jan Elsinga

See all our stories about Milan 2010 in our special category. Here's some text from the designer:


A fearless little chair, that barks but doesn’t bite. Fury! is a lively and visually noisy little fellow.
But he means well. At night he walks around your space, blowing off steam, cursing a bit.
But the cheeky little f**ker has a heart of gold and is actually really really sweet, and he loves being petted…
As with most people it’s an inside-outside thing.

  • modular

    Cute. Yet…. for those of us who have cats inside our homes it’s a bit… ahmm…. ya’know what I mean, right?

    Anyway, keep it up! With or without cats!

  • Katy

    Nice…I like the special feature

  • How bout a green one?

  • jack the ripper

    @modular …

    yes , know what you mean . Mine have adopted a Panton chair to sit pretty ( I am not even allowed on it ) but destroy the sofa instead ( as not designer you see)
    but then again , cats are right snobs….

  • nicey

    am sure it’ll soon be all the rage.

  • sorn sorthor

    green one would look as if designer has an inspiration from durians

  • sorn sorthor

    or cactus

  • designgurunyc

    a piece of furniture with a personality. i hate to admit it, i love it!

  • @sorn:

    Actually cactus.

  • Nice.

    Funny it’s red – cause that looks like it’s been done with pinking shears.

  • Prof Z.

    it’s a very dutch decorative-edged scissors chair

  • eastmeetscrass

    Seriously people, what’s so angry about this chair other than looking like a conventional chair with saw cut felt wrapping….

  • koko

    I could see these chairs totally brighten up your house… And your day!

  • greenguy

    a chair for the Tasmanian Devil (cartoon version). Love to see a bar full of these

  • quelqun

    it's not furious, it's cute. I'd consider it a fail of design, if the designer actually ment to create an angry chair.
