 Feel Cozy in Furniture That Feels, Smells Like Human Skin

A new type of furniture has been created by a British designer that feels and smells like real human flesh.

Gigi Barker has created the skin chair and skin stool set from a pheromone-impregnated silicone base that helped her with the creation of human skin replica, Metro.co.uk reported.

In this project, called 'A Body of Skin', Barker had to study about the texture of skin and shape of bodies in order to re-create the varieties of skin surfaces and volume of flesh.

Barker believes that a bond gets formed when a customer's skin comes into contact with the chair that replicates the exact human touch.
