Chair Self-Destructs After Being Sat On Eight Times [Video]

A team of designers created the DRM Chair as a 48h-long project, from concept to final video shooting. The chair can only be sat on eight times before it self-destructs.

This limited use builds on the concept of piracy, as Digital Rights Management is often used to protect content after a certain number of downloads. This was applied to a physical object so the chair, like a piece of content, is unusable after a certain number of times.
