Chair Looks Around with Hundreds of Curious Eyeballs


Do you ever feel like you’re being watched? It’s hard not to have that feeling when you’re around this upholstered armchair featuring hundreds of plastic eyes by Australian artist Fiona Roberts. If you have a fear of being looked at (scopophobia), you might want to look away from this creepily designed furniture that is aptly titled Scopophilia (“love of looking”).

While most chairs are designed to offer comfort, the Scopophilia has the alternative effect of disturbing one’s ease. Even the biggest attention hogs would feel overexposed with that many eyes on them. Also, the designer admits that the chair, though inviting viewers “into its caress,” is hardly a comfy seat to settle in after a long day. Just think about what those eyes would be looking at then!
