It really does not take rocket science to know that weaponry and furniture do not go hand in hand. However, with a bit of ingenuity and imagination, some designs are possible in spite of their relative contrast of composition. The ‘Fully Loaded’ Chair is certainly one of those exclusive designs, as this fascinating chair is crafted by using real life shotgun bullets.
Conceived by New York based designer Alexander Reh, the chair was originally crafted from a perforated steel frame. This metallic structure was then gun blued by hand for rust protection, thus emanating a unique blue-black appearance of the resulting finish. Finally, the perforations were packed with one time fired 388 12 gauge shotgun shells. This in turn gave a remarkably classy albeit offbeat bearing to the whole chair.
According to the designer, this conception symbolizes the odd dichotomy of comfort and demise, as showcased by the fusion of weaponry and furniture. And, in that he succeeds, as the eccentrically crafted chair convincingly alludes to the very nature of artistic diversity.
