This wonderfully sinister Coppelius Chair has us wishing that Halloween was already here. It was designed Yaara Derkel, inspired by Sigmund Freud’s concept of the uncanny, uncomfortable strangeness that arises when when something familiar seems unsettlingly alien at the same time.
At a glance it simply looks like a handsome chair, a variation of Thonet furniture design.
"However, at a certain hour of the day, when the room is lit, an inexplicable, monstrous projection appears, which symbolically ‘overshadows’ the feelings the original chair provokes."
