Merry Christmas

Christmas tree of chairs
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.

construction of the Christmas tree of chairs

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.

Branched and Rooted Chairs by Pontus Willfors


Pontus Willfors

Swedish Artist Pontus Willfors is based in California and had an exhibition at Edward Cella Art & Architecture Gallery in Culver City “Homeland” in June 2015. There he showed inter alia his “Chairs” that he gave branches and roots.

Via Archiscene

Pontus Willfors challenges the way the viewer perceives everyday objects. He examines aspects of nature that are viewed by our society as product, nuisance or waste. Through mostly sculptural exercises he addresses the power of our culture and its ability to manipulate nature and shape its surroundings.

He has shown his work throughout the continental U.S. including Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis in Los Angeles, Irvine Fine Arts Center, Read Contemporary in Dallas and was part of the curatorial show at Art Miami in 2012.

Pontus Willfors graduated from CalArts (Valencia, CA) in 2009 and has lived and worked in Los Angeles since 2005.
