David Lynch displayed his furniture design skills at the Salone del Mobile tradeshow during Milan Design Week, where he designed a large wooden chair in a room highlighted by a pattern resembling an ocean.

Known for his dark Americana films, including Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive, as well as the TV cult series Twin Peaks, the filmmaker was selected to design the installation after curator Antonio Monda discovered that the filmmaker makes furniture in his spare time.

The Thinking Room by David Lynch is a space dominated by an enormous wooden seat surrounded by brass tubes and a blue velvet curtain. Antonio Monda‘s contribution to the definition of the project is an approach made by about a dozen screens with clips from his films that explain how the director uses the sets and furniture on the set and in the plots of his stories.

Lynch practices transcendental meditation, and he said ‘this [room] is for meditation, but those who don’t do meditation can just think and relax.
