Alien creature furniture by Umberto Dattola

Designer Umberto Dattola recently unveiled a series of furniture-inspired works — there are chairs, beds, drawers and cabinets — at the Milano Design Week in four different locations. Actually, with their long spindly legs — so long that the seats and bases extend far beyond human height — they look like alien creatures invading our homes instead. What could it possibly mean?
