‘Arse is the window of soul.’

A modern simple chair. However, the surface of its seat is covered in transparent plastic. Beneath the plastic hides a scanner; thus the chair is able to scan the bottom of whoever sits on it and print out the image a few minutes later, giving the sitter an exact picture of his or her ‘derrière’. The chair delivers a new visual and interactive experience as well as entertainment for its users.

The chair’s concept was inspired by streakers (buttocks in particular) in British popular culture. Recently, people all over the world feel more confortable to publically express their sexual interests due to this spreading global phenomenon. Therefore the i-Bum reflects this visual sexual context in post-modern popular culture.
