Movie Nerdom: Check Out This Cool Inception Chair

May 20, 2011

If you've watched Inception a couple of times and still can't figure out what the hell is going on with all the dreams within dreams within dreams, then maybe this nerdy piece of furniture will help you wrap your head around Christopher Nolan's brainy concept. RISD student Vivian Chiu created this Inception chair that works as a single chair, but is made up of several detachable smaller chairs of varying sizes. Vivian writes, "Taking the chair archetype and placing within it chairs that are progressively smaller. Each chair has hand cut grooves on the inside edges of its seat frame as well as notches in the seat back. These grooves range from 1/2” wide to 1/8” wide. The mechanism works so that the pegs fit into the grooves of the chair one size bigger and slides into place so that the horizontal edge between the chair seat and back line up. The simple mechanism allows the chairs to be taken apart and put together with ease."
