More reasons to be chairful, especially on this rainy miserable day. AKA as any excuse to indulge my curiosity for weird and playful chairs.
‘Some people say that knowledge is sat in your lap’ (Kate Bush). Lap that wisdom up by trying out this bronze and mixed media ‘Man chair’ by Ruth Franken (1924-2006) This generous cool chair is man-size with attitude.
This pretty in pink chair with the slimline legs has a touch of the Sharon Stone about it, I think. Unsure what it’s going to do next. Dainty as it is, it’s surprisingly sturdy. Designed by Vladimir Tzesler and Sergei Voichenko, a pink splash of glamour.
Let’s drum a bit of interest here with this innovative oil drum chair. Traditionally, oil drums also double up a percussion instruments. Not exactly heavy metal, but this Eco friendly chair is probably pretty ‘cool’ on the derrière.
Artist Lisa Jones created these capillary chairs. Not sure how practical they are, or comfortable but they’re quite beautiful to look at. Made of wood, they are part of her ‘Symbiosis’ collection. ‘Vasa Intestina’ uses a fine tracery of wood with steel to depict the inner workings of the intestines.
That’s it for this collection for now. Hope you found it chairful, chairs!
