Designers Mark Goetz and Efe Buluc have created a lounge chair with elements that resemble bulldozer parts.
According to the designers the Bulldozer Lounge presents "a new visual language characterized by bold industrially produced elements connected in innovative ways. The Bulldozer Lounge is the first piece of a philosophy that magnifies human imagination and creativity rather than deriving inspiration from nature."
The chair is surprisingly comfortable despite the industrial appearance. As expected the red knobs will eventually allow for adjustment of the attached parts (it's a prototype). Bulldozer is made of aluminum with neoprene "upholstery".
