The natural progression of authentically interesting things always winds their way into the mainstream and ultimately into our living rooms. Graffiti has been on this long journey for some time now.

Every now and then the balance is found between the two extremes and interesting things can happen. Check out these Fat Cap Chairs created by designer and artist Sander van Heukelom. I’m not exactly sure what kind of place these things would be able to live in comfortably but they look cool as hell.
