Josie The Chair That Pops

Words

Anyone seen the 1999 hit high school romcom ‘Never Been Kissed’ starring Drew Barrymore? It’ about geeky Josie, who spent her high school years on the social outer-harassed and tormented by the cool kids. Cruelly nicknamed Josie Grossie, never invited to the prom and always the one left sitting alone on a chair at parties.

Italian-based creative studio Mathery imagined what it would look like if the party came to her. They created ‘Josie The Chair That Pops’, a performative chair that celebrates the person who is seated and moreover, celebrates design. Josie lives for the act of sitting down and responds with a joyous burst of colour.
