Behold: The World's Blackest Chair

Behold: The World's Blackest Chair

Have you ever wanted to own a chair so black that it looks like you're staring into a rift in the universe? Now you can, with our new SUPERVOID™ S-Chair, the world's first super black chair available for preorder now exclusively from Death by Modernism. Using Stuart Semple's Black 3.0 pigment (prototype has been made using Black 2.0), the world's darkest commercially available paint, this chair absorbs over 98% of visible light for a striking effect. Unlike any chair before it, you feel as though you're peering into a black hole, while highlighting form and silhouette like never before.

We spent months in our studio, working on this prototype to ensure that we're able to offer folks what we can safely call The Blackest Chair On Earth. Based on the iconic S-Chair design, this molded plastic stackable dining chair is at once a look into our past and our future — making it the perfect objet d'art as a centerpiece for any space.

A huge part of our ethos here at Death by Modernism is ensuring that everything we offer is available at an accessible price point. We worked hard with the SUPERVOID™ S-Chair to make sure that you can own this first-of-its-kind product at a reasonable entry point. For folks that preorder the chair now (for shipping in approximately 9-12 weeks) the $299 price-tag is on par with the classic S-Chair design even without the unique super black finish. Just click here to visit the preorder page for the SUPERVOID™ S-Chair and reserve yours today.

The reason we’re launching this product as a preorder is because we’re a small but growing startup and we thought this would be the best way to understand the demand and know exactly how many chairs we need to manufacture for the first run.

We’ve done a ton of work to make sure that this is truly the most super-matte black chair available. The pictures and video on our website and social media have been taken in completely natural lighting to give you a good sense of what you’re buying. That said, we want to give you a heads-up that the effect using super black acrylic paint is definitely most palpable under indirect natural light, and if you’re looking at the chair with the overhead lights on in your home, the black hole effect can be a bit diminished — like, you can see the chair. As the afternoon progresses, though, the chair gets darker and darker, until the golden hour (or "black hour", in this case), where the “matte”-ifying effect really kicks in and you’re staring right into the void.

To keep up-to-date with more photos and videos of our SUPERVOID™ S-Chair, make sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook. For those of you interested in preordering the product, we encourage you to take a look at the special SUPERVOID™ FAQ that we've created here.
