We whish all our readers a Merry Christmas with this Christmas tree of chairs that a friend jus sent me. The photo is by Nils Sager and the location Amman-Hofer-Platz in Interlaken, Switserland.
Very eco conscious a Christmas tree of chairs, as there are too many chairs in the world already and each and every day more chairs are produced and there are not trees enough around.
2017 is the third year the Chair Christmas tree being construed in Interlaken. The installation is an idea of Barbara Kiener of the Kulturgarage. First they erect a steel construction like the ones used for real Christmastrees…however they fill it with tons of pebbles to keep the structure stable enough for a tree of 6 meter hight and 3 meter wide.

Via Feature Shoot I found Paul Batt, an Australian photographer who makes a series of abandonned sofas in Australia. The only reason his work caught my attention is the background of this abandoned sofa which looks like a Mondrian, member of de Stijl, inspired front of a building…all the way Down Under….
Bent wood chair caught by bent silver birch could be the caption of this photo.
From time to time I search the Commons on Flickr for nice old photos of chairs. This one is part of the State Library of Queensland Library collection.
In Greco-Roman times the city of Paphos in Cyprus was the island’s capital, and it is famous for the remains of the Roman governor’s palace, where well-preserved mosaics and remains of mosaic houses are a major tourist attraction. The mosaics being an important historical spot, it was especially intriguing to find this abondoned house and a chair inside upon taking the wrong turn on the site when I visited.

One of our Facebook fans, La Duchesse et le Crapeaud, pointed me to the Hasard Cheratte Chair.
Hasard Cheratte is a Belgian Coal mine which closed in 1977. Since then it is a fave exploration object for urban explorers and photographers whose subject is abandoned places. A whole new category opens up for Chair Blog, the abandoned chair…
This chair was used to operate winches for a heavy piece of a crane or a lift in the mine.
