Always nice to inspire somebody else. In this case an audio mix video – Trance & Progressive – Falling Star – Compilation 4 (June 2011) – that borrowed the Alphasphere Lounger image by Vienna based artist Sha.
I discovered Vienna, Austria, based Helmut Palla only after he had discovered us via FaceBook. Then he revamped his site (could have done a better job imho). But when I discovered Tristan Cochrane‘s Fish Rocking Chair I also discovered that Saatchi Online also represents Helmut Palla (and are providing me with better photos to share with you than dear Helmut himself).
This Cha Cha Rocking chair is for sale there for $6,500.00.
I hope to visit him once in his studio when Vienna is my travel destination again (usually once or twice a year).
Rui Pereira and Ryosuke Fukusada of Sapore dei Mobili created a “furniture pan” for tiny cakes shaped like interior objects in an attempt to “give new meaning to the notion of ‘good taste’ in furniture”. It’s said to be a comment on “how consumers are unable to digest the huge amount of new products that companies are launching each year.”
Personally, I love the idea behind it more than the presentation of the product itself. But maybe once they find a manufacturer and work out the final details it’d all look more bite-worthy.
