There are a few accounts floating around about these office chair explosions. Apparently when the cylinders go on them they can be quite destructive. I have heard one source relate that he saw shrapnel from one smash tiles from a tile wall...

I guess it is possibe, a combination of compression and metal fatigue can have violent results.

The chair in those photos was obviously doctored (poorly I might add). There is no way that there is enough pressure in one of those chairs to shatter the cylindrical housing. At most, the cylinders might separate but seeing as one usually needs to rise up a bit off a chair like that in order for it to rise, separation of the cylinders would not likely occur while someone is seated.

You can trust that everything I say is factual because I'm on the internet.

Seriously though, think about it.

Well, the absence of any blood is suspicious. Unless somebody steamcleaned the chair before taking the pic.

I don't know how these chairs work or if they all work the same way but an explosion is still a possibility.

Especially if one is tampered with.

In figure A, we see two things:

1 (designated by the red arrows): The "explosion" is centered around the area where the pneumatic cylinder/base of the chair is centered.

*The importance of this will become clear in Figure B*

2 (designated by the green arrows): Distinct tear patterns. Because of the natural bias inherent in any fabric, when torn, a diamond shape (such as the one shown) easily occurs.

Had the fabric been ripped up from shrapnel, we would see a random pattern of holes in various sizes.



In Figure B we see two things as well:

1 (designated by the red arrow): The hole that the arrow is pointing to is the location where the base of the chair attaches. In order for the damage on the chair seat to be centered where it is, the "explosion" would need to originate through this hole. Which could be possible except...

2 (designated by the green arrows): Again we see distinct tear patterns where we should be seeing shrapnel patterns. Also, if the explosion went up through the chair as Fig A suggests, why are we seeing damage to this extent on the bottom of the chair AND FINALLY, with the kind of damage done to the bottom of the chair, we should see damage on the metal plate which houses the chair's base/chair's back.




Yes, I'm that bored. :P

Yes, the pictures seem to reflect a build up of gas inside the seat of the chair rather than a sudden structural failure of an overpressured gas cylinder.

Nice work 53V3N.

Looks like somebody hooked this chair up to an air compressor or something.

I doubt they even went to that extent. To me, the damage looks fabricated with little more than a box cutter and bare hands.
