Quirky Food-Inspired Furniture Lets You Lounge on a Hot Dog or Hamburger

Furniture Design

It’s not everyday that you can cozy up to a hot dog or hamburger, but in one unconventional collection of furniture design, it's now possible to snuggle up with a pickle slice. In a collaboration between Italian retailer Seletti and designers at Studio Job, beloved greasy foods have transformed into quirky upholstered furniture. Aptly called the Fast Food Furniture series, the colorful seating aims to have unpretentious fun with product design by fusing it with icons of American pop culture.

Upon first glance, it’s impossible to mistake Studio Job's intentions for the chair and sofa as anything but food. The structure of the pieces, clad in a caramel brown color, resemble the type of bread buns used in the real dishes. Its pillows act as the sausage, patty, and their accouterments, which are made even more convincing with details like tomato seeds and a swirl of yellow mustard. While certainly not for everyone, this novelty furniture design shows that seating need not be boring; in the right conditions, it can even make us laugh.

Fast Food Furniture is part of a larger collection called UN_LIMITED EDITIONS, and it's the second of the Seletti and Studio Job collaborations. Their first was aluminum chairs modeled after Victorian-era garden furniture. Although more conventional than a hamburger, the metal seating also infuses fun through its illustrative surface designs.
