The Harkonnen Capo Chair is one of H. R. Giger's furniture designs. It is manufactured by hand chiefly out of aluminium or black fiberglass and made to resemble a human skeleton. The chair was initially designed for an unproduced movie version of the 1965 Frank Herbert science fiction novel Dune that was to be directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky in the 1970s. Baron Harkonnen is the villain of Herbert's novel.
The most prominent feature of the Capo Chair is a crown of three noseless skulls stacked on top of each other in a column above the back of the chair. This feature is what distinguishes the Capo Chair from regular Harkonnen Chairs, which lack the triple skull crown as well as armrests. Giger sold replicas for $30,000 (fiberglass) to $50,000 (aluminium).
