Rietveld’s Berlin Chair
I’m kind of proud a Google search Berlin Chair by Rietveld results in a first place for a photo featured in a prior post.
Finally I’ve my own photo’s of the very chair. The Stedelijk in Amsterdam has one.
In addition there is one up for sale at Phillips today.
Estimate £12,000 – 18,000.
Curious what it’s result will be.
Upodate: Sold for £16,250
Early Slatted Marcel Breuer Chair
Both the London Design Museum and NY based Moma have one in their collection.
Influenced by? Rietveld I would say.
As auctioned by Wright
Teneride Chair by Mario Bellini
I had taken some photo’s from this chair at the Milan Triennale Design Museum last September, not knowing exactly what to think of this extraordinary chair, until Wright had it on auction on June 7, 2012:
molded polyurethane, lacquered wood, lacquered fiberglass
26.25 w x 25.5 d x 35.5 h inches
Made from a single piece of molded polyurethane, this experimental chair was technically difficult to create and was never put into production.
And now I’m more confused: Was the one I photographed a prototype? This prototype, or are there more prototypes?
Milan Triennale Design Museum (1)
In September, 2011, I visited the Milan Triennale Design Museum which has many designer chairs on display and in its permanent collection. I’ll devote a some posts to their collection.
This Rose Chair was designed by Masanori Umeda for Edra.
