Simone Giertz Builds a Thoughtful Office Chair to Accommodate Herself and Her ‘Needy’ Dog Scraps

Not wanting to taxidermize herself into a bed for her beloved dog Scraps, self-proclaimed “queen of shitty robots” and engineer Simone Giertz, instead decided to design an office chair that would accommodate the behinds of both human and canine.

The chair also includes a set of rounded stairs for Scraps to use to go up to the seat and a comfy enclosed dog bed at the Giertz’s feet. The build was successful, although Giertz felt it was a bit large for her taste.

My dog would really prefer it if I turned myself into a dog bed. Since I’m not too keen on that project, I built her a chair instead. …I would definitely want to reduce the footprint a little bit because this chair is a fortress. It’s a warship. It’s the Ever Given stuck in my office canal
