Chairs for the Dysfunctional are a series of seats designed to illustrate different social sitting habits. More than that, they question the way we interact with inanimate objects in our daily lives. The chairs were designed by Alice Wang; a recent graduate of MA Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art.

I particularly like the above work that allows you to update your status on the back of your chair. It brings to light the ridiculous behavior of letting the world know what we're up to or what kind of mood we're in at all times. This chair will be shown at the Salone Satellite at the Milan Furniture Fair (22-27 April, 2009) next week.

There's also the chair that equalizes heights

and the fart amplifying chair.
