The Paddy Chair by Nick Melville
The Paddy Chair is described by designer Nick Melville as “a comfy chair for nutters.” As you might have guessed, Melville’s inspiration for the piece is the classic padded cell. The enclosed shape is intended to promote a sense of safety and security for the user and offer a place where one can relax in peace and quiet.
It actually looks fairly comfortable, but you have to wonder whether the box shape would make it difficult to use. It might be better if a light were installed inside to make it easier to relax with a book.
