Baud seat by Vito Selma is meant to “capture the essence of the wave”. From the designer:

“Few languages capture the essence of the wave quite like the Cebuano variant; almost perfectly emulating the smoothness and solidness of water as it crashes against the surf, the sift and swirl of water as it curls inward and out from itself. This collection is a tribute to the ocean that has forever kept the island city of home… home in its undulating embrace.”

Marni Chairs Project – Milan 2012

Marni is an Italian fashion brand that takes advantage of the public attention the Salone Mobile in Milan gets to combine a couple of things:

“L’arte del Ritratto” is a photographic exhibition depicting Marni world. A project in collaboration with photographer and filmmaker Francesco Jodice, that continues, his artistic research based on the work of cataloging: the chairs, made by colombian craftsmen, became the stage where Marni employees pose: a tribute dedicated to them destined to last over time.

So it is a sort of Chair Installation where the chair functions as background for a photographic exhibition.

But it is also a rehabilitation project whereby former prison inmates try to get a new life by the production and selling of these outdoor chairs.

Part of the sales goes to a charity in Milan to enable wives of prison inmates to get on with their life. So it is a charity project as well.

The color schemes of the chairs are in line with the Marni color schemes.

Clever, but I still call it simply Chairvertizing.
