It's a seat with a surprise: designers at Mathery Studio have created Josie, a beechwood chair that pops colorful confetti the moment you sit down. Inspired by the geeky high school protagonist of 1999 rom-com, Never Been Kissed, who gets stood up by her prom date, “Josie was born from the idea of empathizing with a moment—the action of seating,” the team explains on their site. “Driven by the need to restore a WOW effect and sense of occasion, Josie celebrates the person who is seated and moreover, celebrates design.”
