PROSPECT PARK, Brooklyn (PIX11) – A pair of pink chairs in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park is gaining traction on social media.

The bean bag chairs, which look inflatable, are actually solid and very heavy, according to artist Cj Hendry. They’re made out of recycled plastic material, Hendry wrote in an Instagram post.

The chairs are part of a public art series called “Inflatable,” which plays with the idea of weight and scale, according to the Prospect Park Alliance.

They were installed earlier this month in the southeast corner of the park. They’ll stay in that location through October.
