A chair made of old tires

Perfect place to rest when you're feeling tired.

I really like this.

It's certainly stylish and attractive, as long as it doesn't smell rubbery and leave smudges on your clothing and skin. However, I don't understand where your head goes. Inside the tire, like is that a canopy type curve over the top of the chair? I don't know what's going on here.

Needs banana for scale. But it doesn't look like the back is tall enough to offer any sort of headrest; roughly a mid-back chair. Also looks like there's some sort of varnish/sealant on it, so probably seals in the smell and smudges.

Ohhhh, I see it now. Thanks; I had the perspective all wrong!

Looked up the brand as I’d never heard of it, they were made by Goodyear and discontinued in 2001.
