Called Darwin Chair, the piece for Dutch collective Droog is covered in 200 sheets of paper each with a different print.
The top sheet can be removed and discarded each time it becomes worn.
Here's a bit of text from Droog:
Darwin chair by Stefan Sagmeister
The Darwin chair utilizes a free swinging structure that includes about 200 sheets of attached prints. As the top sheet gets dirty or tired, the user can simply rip it off thereby transforming the chair’s appearance (and the remaining perforation eventually forms a comfortable head rest).
All sheets are printed with intricate patterns abstracting the creation of the universe, making their way through the creation of the world, the beginning of plant, animal and human life, all the way to the digital revolution.
