VASA INTESTINA CHAIR
—Designed by Lisa Jones
This unusual chair is from the designer's Symbiosis chair series. It's intricately cut wood on a delicate steel frame. This is both beautiful an ugly to me. The beautiful part of it reminds me of those delicate sea coral fans, and the ugliness of it reminds me of a skeleton. A med student might appreciate this more than me. Still, it's unique, and we like that here at Chair Du Jour.

Symbiosis basically means ‘living together’ and in the context of marine biology refers to a close relationship between two species. As an example, think of the Clown fish and the anemone in Finding Nemo.
