The arse is the window to the soul.
Designed by Japanese “interactive designer” Tomomi Sayuda, this armchair sofa comes with a photocopying machine pointing up your bum. Here is her explanation on how she came up with the idea:
“This project came from “impact” brief. My initial concern was the news about a naked British streaker who jumped into the Japanese Emperor’s palace moat. I was interested in the principle of the news, which is showing embarrassment without big harm for fun. For me, impact means positive and humorous reaction. I decided how to represent this principle. This idea development took the longest time of my four projects. I was brainstorming in many ways with some practical developments since October 2008. Finally I came up with the idea of scanning people’s bum.”
Makes perfect sense.
So watch as these people try it out and get a free photocopied image of their flattened ass.
