Our client wanted to make an impact in a big way. To promote their latest product they wanted to bring to life one of the most iconic in-game weapons of all time!
The Armchairgeddon is a fully operational, oversized armchair with rotating guns and even a recline function. Our brief was to make the chair fully road worthy so it started life as a mobility scooter. We stripped down the scooter and crafted the chair and scooter together. We even included indicators and a headlight to make sure we stayed on the right side of the law. The fabric we used to upholster the chair is an exact match of that used in game.
In addition to the build we fully supported our clients when they took the chair into central London to film a spoof video. We provided transport for the chair and full mobile workshop support (should it have been needed).
Our clients liked the chair so much, that they asked us to build them a static, standard chair size version for their Benelux office.
