Japanese designer Keisuke Fujiwara molded a functional piece of furniture out of styrofoam mesh, which allows for a high level of flexibility and comfort. The cushiony material delicately wraps around anyone who sits on it. Fujiwara took inspiration from the local Japanese market, where fruits were wrapped in the same styrofoam mesh.

The bulbous chair has two variations: one with an opening extending through the foot of the chair to the back and the other from the seat to the floor. Adding a contemporary twist to the living room, the wrapping chair is an enjoyable piece of furniture that is practical and unique.
