Istanbul 2003 Biennial: A Chair Installation

Recently I visited the 2007 Istanbul Biennial.

While browsing the web and preparing a couple of posts for my other Blog about this visit, I thought I had missed this installation, but now I am assured that these were pictures of the 2003 Istanbul Bienial. Thanks to Pytr75 (alias Belgian Pieter van den Dorpe).

After a comment on my prior post from Fasita I was curious whether I could find a picture of the Thonet #16.

Instead I found a very interesting German Language site of a Swiss Thonet afficionado Dieter Staedeli.

Just a photo of Philippe Starck, famous designer and chair designer, a bit photo shopped, but as he is, a bit idiosyncratic….
