Without phaenotypic variation, there would be no evolution by natural selection.

Flip series by Daisuke Motogi × sixinch

You know how these Japanese are; full of creative ideas on simple but surprising conversions of objects, you would never imagine. But when you see them you say; “Ahh! I could have thought of this!” And usually this “this” is a lazer enhanced pigal that gives cholesterol’s level test results while you’re cleaning your toilet, with a singing voice and nyan cat’s tune as a background.

Six Inch and  Daisuke Motogi Architecture have a  practical yet imaginative mind and they just flipped a seat. And there  you go, another seat! So they decided they are ready to bring these easy-to-convert seats into the market under the name “Flip Series”. They are like oversized children toys made of urethane. I could spot some influences from Keith Haring’s illustrations on the seats’ design, confirmed by their blueprints.

On the following video you can see how you can flip a rocking chair to a lounge chair and vice versa.

This transforming from a sit to another takes a few seconds, unless you have an undecided mind which must cause  quite a time-consuming confusion.
