A Load of Old Bollocks

Ever looked at your lounge room and thought gosh what this room needs is a massive set of gonads? No, neither have I, but London based designer Gigi Barker must have because she’s created a range of lounge furniture that looks, feels, and smells like human skin. All in the shape of testicles.

I’m not sure why she decided the crown jewels would be a good idea, although she has said she wanted the user to “question their relationship and level of comfort they have in their own skin .” How thoughtful of her. I’ve always instinctively hated beanbags. Now I know why. 

Featuring both armchairs and footstools in the range, Barker infuses her reversed leather designs with silicone, aftershave and human pheromones to get the hyper realistic finish she is known for. Charming. At least there’s not a range of hairy ones I guess. Not yet, anyway. 

This really is one of those occasions where contemporary design actually is a load of old bollocks. Ugh.

  1. Aw, this was a really good post. Spending some time and actual effort to generate a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never manage to
    get anything done.
