First Chair in the Orchestra

Meet the Invisible Chair, a simple wooden chair leading a double life as a musical instrument. The Invisible Chair is every bit a chair: have a seat, lean back, stand on it to change a light bulb. But the five slats of its seat are tuned to a musical scale like the keys of a xylophone. The frame of the chair is white oak. Its seat is hard maple. The resonating chambers hidden under the seat are bamboo. The chairs are constructed using mortise and tenon joinery and finished in polyurethane.  All Invisible Chair photos on this site were taken by Matthew Spencer.

      Alley,
      I sell these out of my studio where I make them. I can also ship or deliver if you aren’t in the area.
      Thanks,
      Mark

    Suppose you built an Invisible Bench? That would be freaking sweet.
