we have seen our fair share of weird furniture that makes us go pretty dope but this particular art furniture here is just not one of those. in fact, it will probably make any car enthusiast weep with sadness. created by designer Charly Molinelli for an undisclosed client, this particular coffee table here has a real crashed Ferrari, compacted and crammed inside it, and the rather cruel result is totally visible through its gleaming glass table top. as a car enthusiast myself, I can tell you this is some art that I would not quite appreciate but I have to commend on the overall table design. though, it could probably do a little more than a stuffed crashed Ferrari in it. don’t you think so? according to Molinelli, it cost about 10,000 euros to create this coffee table. seriously? a thrashed up prancing horse squeezed inside a coffee table still cost that much to make? i am all but amazed. hit past the jump for a small of gallery of this sad art for any car fanatics.

Isukebo is the result of fusing skateboard into a chair design. no kidding and it looks pretty awesome too. ok, it is awesome. created by Japan-based custom skateboard maker, RollingFoot, the Isukebo has seat and back made out of skateboard deck material and has skateboard wheels. hmmm, interesting. i wonder if i can change the some racing ball bearing or something? it is essentially a chair, however if you like, you can roll it around with your feet just like you would with your ordinary office chair, but it has a bonus: it can turn by shifting your body weight to either side, just like what you will do on a skateboard – except that you will be seating down instead of standing.
