2. H.R. Giger: Harkonnen Chair – Skull Edition [source]
A limited edition Harkonnen “Capo” chair created and personally owned by the late H.R. Giger. The Harkonnen chairs were limited to a very short production run, and this particular chair was displayed in Giger’s own home as well as in touring exhibitions.
Made of aluminium, the Capo Chair is designed to appear as though it is made from human bones, with a spine and a long line of ribs running down the back of the chair, a pelvis above the head and three nose-less skulls adorning the top. Armrests are present at either side, and the four-legged stand allows the seat to rotate. A moulded rubber cushion is fitted into the back for comfort.
3. Jolly Roger – GUFRAM [source]
Jolly Roger. A chair that formally hints to the skull – the symbol of swagger painted on the red standard of French and then English corsairs and freebooters, terror of the seven seas. And it is the globe itself to remain suspended in the internal frame – a map surrounded by the oceans; the desire for insatiable conquest; almost an exhortation not to keep still; a warning: never forget you are sitting on the world.

5. Black Angular Skull Armchair [source]
Designed and created by Harold Sangouard, the chair is a resin structure built off a steel frame, and finished with a glossy black paint. There’s a golden version in the works as well. Built in a blend of furniture and art, the skull chair is quite an intriguing set. Padded seating of the chair is covered in velvet, and its structure is built for comfort. As far as design and execution goes, this is great. I’d be an evil genius if that meant sitting on the chair, but I woefully lack that talent.
