Erin Hayne and Nuno Gonçalves Ferreira have created a new line of thermochromatic furniture that features stools, benches and chairs which all change color based on body heat. Called “The Swamp Collection”, by Visual Reference Studio, it is really nothing more than a giant mood ring couch whose shape is inspired by the flora and fauna of the Mississippi cypress swamp where the studio is located. Besides the potentially awkward body color imprints that these chairs could retain, the design seems new and refreshing; an older concept changed into something (vaguely) striking. They seem to be available with a 4 to 6 week lead time, but price is not known.
