The Chair number two is the Bubble Chair designed by Phillip Starck for Kartell, we invited Dutch artist/designer Bas Kosters to model because mr Kosters is a pop artist
Vitra showcased everything they ever produced in a huge stand. Newest designs mixed with older ones in large mock-up rooms; in different styles and colorschemes: primary colors, in orange, and in a colder colorscheme with silver (introducing the limited edition Verner Panton chair in chrome.) and one in pastels. Furthermore there was an almost educational part to be seen at the salone del mobile fair: ‘classic’ designs by Charles and Ray Eames, Maarten van Severen, Jasper Morrison and Hella Jongerius, showcased in a way that you could see how they are made; a true ‘design showcase’. Also on show, in wooden cupboards as large as walls, were all the accessories produced by Vitra through the years, which was a nice interior-history lesson as well.
We, at Mimi Berlin, thought this was a very impressive and beautiful presentation.
As always; some images of what we desrcibed above. If you would like to read and see more information click to go to vitra.com
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.
Red and Blue Chair designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1917. Wassily Chair, designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925 (currently produced by Knoll). Lounge chair and ottoman designed by Eames in 1959. (currently produced by Herman Miller)
There are probably are more examples. Please be so kind to share them with us if you know! Thanks! xoxo Mimi
