Could This Be The Second Chapter In The “Catholicism WOW!” Campaign?


There’s something supremely sexy about this chair. Somehow Per Emanuelsson and Bastian Bischoff, the two brains behind this exquisite piece (sin?) have made a crucifix inspired lounger look totally practical, relaxing and comfortable. Now I’m no theology scholar, but that seems a bit ironic given the whole history of this particular symbol. If I were a “believing” man I’d probably be going to hell for lusting after such a sacred icon. Luckily I’m not (mainly because of beliefs, rituals and science), so worries there. That could be why I like it so damn much…it’s like a more refined Buddy Jesus. A comtemporary piece for the hi-brow furniture crowd. Could this be the second chapter in the “Catholicism WOW!” campaign? Either way, these two guys flexed some serious carpentry skills.

To see other work by Per Emanuelsson and Bastian Bischoff, hit up their home-base on the Interweb, Humans Since 1982.
