Icila Song Chair: a Chair With Qr Tag Tech

We have seen some pretty nifty chairs before, but we have never seen one that takes advantage of Qr codes. With a great combination of smart design and tech smarts, this is one piece of seating that is right up our alley.

Using Qr code technology like those found on advertisements currently plastered all over our fair city, Icila Song by French designer Cecile Planchais allows you to listen to music from a scan of the Qr code. Using your camera phone (and the downloaded app), you simply scan the code on the chair and pre-programmed music or text is played.

The modern chair is made of a single sheet of steel, designed to keep waste to a minimum in the production process. The surface treatment, in keeping with being green, is made from a vegetable base.

We love the concept and design and wish it was in our budget. We'd love to try the chair and will make sure to do so the next time we are in Brussels as it is currently being used by the Musical Instruments Museum there.

The chair is available in white, black, or steel for about $2222 or 1570.€, and orange for $2241 or 1765.€.
