Observing our surroundings we cannot fail to notice the ubiquity of animal skin. Animal skin is everywhere and used for a multitude of things like bags,shoes, furniture, etc. One might be repugnant to the fact that our lovely contoured chair be covered in the skin of a dead animal.
Bio-furniture is living furniture. In modern times from Descartes, we have been neglecting the body as an attached part of our consciousness. Merleau-Ponty documented the symptoms of 'phantom limb' in patients who had lost a body part in war. Bio-furniture using skin expansion is questioning the boundaries of existence , it threatens to open new avenues into Bioethics by touching the real existence of 'Others'.
