Happy Chair

Sometimes I find images of chairs on the world wide web of which I cannot find their provenance. This tubular Happy Chair is one of those. It is a nice variation on the cantilever chair. I hope my readers can help me.

Carbon Balloon Chair by Marcel Wanders

Was designed in 2013, but I couldn’t find decent photo’s until Marcel Wanders produced some one offs or personal editions for his solo exhibition in the prestigious Amsterdam Stedelijk Museum for Modern Art from January till June this year.

Will it beat the Supper Legerra with its weight of approximately 800 grams?

It reminds me of Marcel’s breakthrough Knotted Chair of 1996.
It is inspired by work of Hester Oelermans.
