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.
Gold Crunch Stool by Bruno Rainaldi
Found this stool at The Longest Stay
This luxurious golden stool by designer Bruno Rainaldi is part of the Tab.U Collection and is made with hand-wrinkled and crushed aluminium. Its exterior is polished gold and it has an solid wooden interior for added durability. The stool has a non-slip dark grey cushion in thick felt at the bottom and a gold mirror top. We suggest using these stools as side tables, low seating or even just as a decorative piece.
Goldleaf Lui5 by Philippe Bestenheider
We’ve featured the new retro Lui5 of Philippe Bestenheider for the Italian Boffi Brothers earlier, but not the golden one. Since one of our contributors has a Golden Blog, we are always on the look out for golden chairs. Philippe is redoing his site. So I’ll link to his FaceBook page for the time being.
Golden Magistretti Karma Chair
“Let’s start the week with featuring a Golden Chair” I thought and picked one of my Golden Chair Pinterest Board: The Golden Magistretti Karma Chair by Basel, Switzerland based Okay Art. Actually it is a gilded Selene Chair by Vico Magistretti.
Renaissance by Recycling
Okayart turns old design furniture into new and novel creations.
Unfortunately, not all pieces of furniture requiring repairs may be restored to their original condition. And as we do not want to sell ruins and throwing them away would be a shame, we prefer creating something new by way of novel combinations.
Okayart professionally restores defective furniture to once again render them functional. We then select other materials – for instance precious gold leaf combined with cloths from England and Scotland – and send these refurbished pieces of design furniture into a new orbit. We gift them, so to say, with a new karma.
In this manner, we are creating original, limited-edition, and unique pieces (collectors should watch out!) that can turn into much noticed attention getters.
