We spotted OMA‘s new furniture line for Knoll, Tools for Life, a few weeks ago in Milan, but couldn’t quite figure out where the architecture firm’s radically customizable coffee tables and chairs would fit in. The ever-shifting and totally adjustable designs suggest a new kind of lifestyle and work environment—a challenge to the status quo of sitting still. These pieces aren’t furniture as much as GIFs that you can sit on. But it has finally dawned on us: If anyone would ever want to sit on a GIF it would be David Karp—and what cutting-edge office would need OMA-designed Knoll furniture but the newly cash-tumescent Tumblr? More GIFs after the jump!
