Erotic Furniture: Furnishing People's Lust
Sexy or cringeworthy? Erotic furniture is hardly to everyone's taste. SPIEGEL ONLINE presents some recent attempts at making furniture to fan the flames of passion.
Designers have long sought to create erotic furniture, with mixed success. Here are some recent examples of the genre including a "Boobycase" drinks cabinet, a four-poster bed surrounded by giant carved penises, a "bend-over chair" and a "Tittyfrutty" fruit bowl.
Dutch designer Mario Philippona has emerged as a doyen of the craft of creating arousing tables, provocative chairs and titillating cabinets.
He says on his Web site that he is inspired by "female forms, the most attractive in nature."
