Dutch Designers Re-invent The Chair

Dutch Designers Re-invent The Chair

What do the Red and Blue chair designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1918, The Wassily chair, designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925 and the Lounge chair and ottoman designed by Eames in 1959, have in common, except for the fact they are designed in the 20th century? Well, these design icons have all been re-invented by Dutch Designers. Just that.

Documentary ANTIFASHION


Anti Fashion; 2012 Directed by Olivier Nicklaus. Produced by Arte France, Lalala Productions.

“In the early 1990s, with the economic crisis, the first Gulf War and the devastation caused by AIDS, fashion reflected the times. It was sombre, desperate and sometimes violent. Clothing underwent deconstruction and recycling, and fashion shows became fashion performances. Fashion would never be the same again.-A riveting tale of interwoven destinies, recreating the feeling of an era, pulsating the energy of an epic novel.
A tale of creativity, money, egos, successes… and falls.”
