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.

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)

Schueller de Waal Collection Spring-Summer 2018 Compulsory Shenanigans

Schueller de Waal Collection Spring-Summer 2018 Compulsory Shenanigans

Schueller de Waal is a Dutch independent fashion label which showed their 9th collection ‘Compulsory Shenanigans’ for Spring-Summer 2018, yesterday evening (Sept 6th) in Tower 4 of the World Fashion Center in Amsterdam. The designers, Rens de Waal and Philipp Schueller, went Big, Large and More! They set themselves the task to measure up to show like the huge and established fashion houses do; within, and embracing the limitations they have as a small and independent fashion label.”Serious fashion…not so serious” as Schueller de Waal stated.
