In the past year, we have seen it all. From a pretty stuffed animal plush chair to a walking table, the world of furniture design was full of innovation and creativity. If you thought things couldn’t get any bizarre, brace yourself to welcome the AI-generated fruit chair that will have you throw ergonomics out of the window because it’s mostly the design that will have you glued.
Frank Jacobus is an architect and professor whose ‘Fruity’ collection has been making rounds on social media. As evident from the name, the furniture collection is inspired by fruits. Ranging from watermelon and orange chairs to a gorgeous dragon fruit seating option, the AI-generated furniture collection is worth having a glimpse at.
While designers like Joao Teixeira and Deniz Aktay rely on 3D software and the render plugin, Frank uses Midjourney AI algorithm to give shape and form to his weird, and uncanny graphic compositions. In some instances, the result is a gorgeous-looking chair boasting juicy seating like dragon fruit, cranberry, and blueberry chair.

Personally, the Dragon fruit chairs are the standout pieces for me. From its color to shape everything is top-notch. In other cases, it turns out to be an alliteration pear chair which I am not sure would be comfortable at all. Nevertheless, all his AI furniture pieces look glossy, juicy, and absolute peach. “One has to develop a fondness for the grotesque to appreciate the Pear Chair,” he states.
