Sitzmuster des Todes – “Seat Pattern of Death”

View all 20 Photos

Sitzmuster des Todes – literally translated as “seat pattern of death” – is one of those guilty pleasure sites. Every urban traveler knows the ugly patterns that cover bus seats and other interiors of public transportation vehicle, but who knew to centralize them? The boldest and most offensive have been collected in the spirit of fun, and with each pattern representing a different city and a different audience to astound. The series of images is as colorful and dizzying as those stereographic books that you used to stare at as a kid. Luckily, the photographs are just as entertaining!
