Before you chop up that old, uncomfortable chair in the attic for firewood, check out the S-Chair Transformer. This laser-cut polyethylene foam cover can be fitted over the chair to remedy all of its shortcomings.
Well, maybe not all of its shortcomings. I mean, this thing still isn't super easy on the eyes—but it does look more comfortable. Personally, I don't think it holds up to a can of spray paint and a cushion, but it is an interesting idea nonetheless. Whether or not it will ever become a real world product remains to be seen.
