Walk, Don’t Walk Or Sit – Road Tested Chair

Keeping with the theme of designer furniture here’s a great way to bring the hustle and bustle of the big city indoors. The Road Tested Chair created by John Carter is made from an actual New York City ‘Walk-Don’t Walk’ sign that still functions. It plugs into a standard 115V outlet and includes a remote control to turn the signals on and off.

The legs are made from steel street sign brackets that have been reconfigured and the seating surfaces have been replaced with new one-inch polished resin cushioned with felt. You also have the option to order the chair with the genuine nicks, dents and stains it received while serving its duty in New York City or with a fresh coat of yellow paint instead.

I’m not entirely sure how the lights are procured but I suspect a portion of their $3,700 cost is going towards someone’s bail money.
