The Harkonnen Chair, one of H.R. Giger’s furniture designs is manufactured by hand chiefly out of black fibreglass and made to resemble human skeleton. The chair was initially designed for the unproduced movie version of the novel DUNE that was originally slated to be directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky.
This Harkonnen Chair is located in New York City. It has been used for a large number of celebrity photo shoots, too numerous to list all, a selection of images from just one of these shoots is shown below.
