This chair is filled with as many litres of tears you’ll cry in a lifetime

Japanese designer Keita Suzuki has created a rather unusual-yet thought-provoking-chair design. The Tear Drop Chair is a free-form design that is filled with 64 litres of water. Why that exact amount of water? It’s supposed to signify the average volume of tears a human being will shed during their lifetime. Sixty-four litres, people! That’s a lot of tears and a lot of eye redness.

Fortunately, Suzuki has used a strong vinyl plastic material to make sure the water stays inside, not out. The chair also acts as a natural magnifying lens, just like a water droplet is nature’s magnifying lens.
