The Monster Chair For Moooi by Marcel Wanders
A stylish puffy quilted black synthetic leather chair available with or without a fabulous "monster face" sewn into the back. The chair, originally designed in 2010 for Moooi by designer Marcel Wanders is part of a family of seating from Moooi designed by Wanders and comes in two styles, one with a flared and rounded back:
Or in a simple squared off back (shown without the monster face):
Here you can see both styles in situ in the Andaz Hotel dining room:
The chairs have a steel frame, fire retardant synthetic leather upholstery and have been subjected to an abrasion test of >50.000 rubs.

The Monster chair was joined by the Monster barstools in two heights in 2011 and the Boutique Sofa, but neither appears to be available with the whimsical monster face.
On Wanders own site he shows a Monster Pillow (below), but I believe that was never produced:
