I’m cute – and God I hate that. Because that’s not cool. I’m like your niece, and nobody wants to date their niece. It’s the chubby cheeks. The whole reason people voted for me on American Idol is because I’m an everyday, normal girl. (Kelly Clarkson)

Well, Kelly – I reckon you’d definitely be considered cool if you got yourself one of Merve Kahraman’s Hybrid chairs. They are seriously cool…

The Hybrid collection was inspired by the mythologies of parahumans. The anthro chairs apparently unite with each owner, merging them into one.  They are entirely handmade, special leathers were selected and a textured paint finish applied on wood to mimic the appearance of a deer or rabbit and create an animalistic feeling for the user.

Merve Kahraman was born in 1987. She studied Interior Design at the Istituto Europeo di Design (Milan/Italy) before moving to London. Since graduating, she has worked in several architecture and design studios in Istanbul, New York and London. Her decision to specialise in industrial design stems from her desire to include furniture and products as an integral part of her designs for spaces.

Currently, she is continuing her masters education in Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (London/UK) and working on her own industrial design projects.

Have I mentioned I think her work is seriously cool?

Wonderbutt would love to chomp on these!

Sadly, I suspect you may be right (although he has been a very good boy about the new sofa…)

Now I could quite happily place my derriere on that Antler seat – Love it…. I just need a blunderbuss and no one would mess with me!!!:-) — maybe that is getting a little carried away!

…trying to imagine GI BCD with her blunderbuss…

hmmm… yes no Lara Croft am I!

I vote the next chair be an octopus!

Quite liking that idea… or, maybe – for a more classic safari option – a zebra?

Awesome, these are very cool chairs 🙂

I love your finds! The rabbit chair just soooo belongs in our burrow. Just stunning. Cheers or should I say Chairs. Sue

I love how you always find something so positive (and clever) to say. Thanks Sue! 🙂

Kelly Clarkson has got nothing on these beauties….they look pretty awesome I must say! 🙂

Another one to put in the ‘how do they come up with these ideas?’ file…

Not only are these chairs cool they are absolutely surreal! (is that how you spell it?) I love them!

You want surreal, Baby – check out tomorrow’s post!

Hope you are well, C. 🙂

they are very cool. Alice in Wonderland inspired, when looking at the rabbit chair. And Colorado mountains inspired, looking at the antlers one!

The rabbit chair is very Alice, M. You are so right!
