Yes, you can sit on it… I love the humour in these clever designs by the very talented duo, Maurizio Galante and Tal Lancman for Cerruti Baleri. I’m particularly enamoured of the Cactus – the combination of the prickly image surrounding the soft(ish) seat makes me smile just to look at it.

The Tattoo is a flexible pouffe or footrest in the shape of an egg (tato) or sphere (tatino). Made from CFC-free flexible polyurethane with a rigid structure and plastic base, this amazingly creative artwork has photographic images printed on the bi-elastic technical-fabric cover. Once the cover is fitted, the image becomes three-dimensional. I think the concept is just brilliant.

While there are all sorts of designs to choose from, here are some of the other designs available in the range:

Winning the Wallpaper* Design Award 2012 for ‘best faking it’ (what a brilliant award, I say!) – the Tattoo is guaranteed to turn heads wherever you choose to put it.

I couldn’t find a supplier in Australia, but you can access the Cerruti Baleri website here. Can’t wait to see what image they come up with next…
