Sam Buxton Clone Chaise

This anatomical luminous lounger, of which only 6 were made, was created by British designer Sam Buxton. The lounger can actually detect someone’s presence, lighting up when someone is near. As the individual interacts with the chair, the chair is brought to life, with a beating heart and breathing lungs.

The Clone Chaise is part of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
