At the occasion of the 2015 Biennale of Venice the Spanish paviljon paid a tribute to Salvador Dali where I found this hot lips sofa. The original was designed after Mae West’s lips by Dali in 1938.
These chairs were laid out for a wedding in 1939 in Poland. The wedding was abandoned, and so were the chairs due to the German invasion. They were found again after the war with the trees growing through them. Every year they are repainted.
To me it sounds like an urban legend…
Thanks to the opening of a new design shop in The Hague, Mas Interieur, I now have my own photo’s of the LC2 with a comfy black upholstery.
Recently I visited Keramis, a new museum in Belgium dedicated to Ceramic art. The museum is built (folded) around a very old ceramic oven and was opened in May 2015. It features the Bouroullec brothers’ Vegetal Chair in its café.
