Cassette chair brings back Memorex memories

However, this quirky piece of furniture covered in old cassette tapes won't play Madonna, ABBA, or The Cure when you sit on it.

Nostalgic Chair

Nostalgia can be a powerful thing, and few things quite pluck at the heartstrings like the compact cassette--if you were born before the 1990s, of course. For those who like collecting bits of tech history, this novel idea for a chair would fit right into the collection.

A designer from quirky design house OOO My Design took a simple wooden chair frame, patiently fastened a bunch of old cassettes to it, and aptly named it the Nostalgic Chair. To top that off, she attached an actual Sony Walkman and a pair of headphones for the ultimate blast from the past.

Though we wouldn't recommend buying this chair for sitting, this piece of retro art can be yours for a relatively reasonable 140 euros ($198).
