Nice retread of the familiar oil-drum-chair concept, which manages to actually connect the form of the drum and the function of the chair in a rational way. There are four rubber feet–two in front and two in back–and the arc between them can be adjusted to set how far the seat rocks, presumably all the way down to no rocking at all. The seat is made of “waxen smoked bamboo,” which also happens to be the magical name of my hippie sister-in-law. Via Recyclart.

P.S. I’m collecting drum/barrel chairs in the comments. If you know of one we haven’t mentioned, please to drop us a link!
