The rag chair is part of an exhibition of 100 plus chairs, curated by Workshop of Wonders to celebrate 100 years of Dutch Chair Design in the machineroom of SS Rotterdam. I’ve made some photo’s there and will share them with you. It is designed by Tejo Remy in 1991, but from their site it appears the design is also by Rene Veenhuizen.
The grey chair in the background is the V.I.P. chair, designed by Marcel Wanders in 2000.
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.

Italian manufacturer Capellini is “at it” at Pinterest. I noticed they are looking at our Pinterest boards today. Hence I discovered a whole set of Capellini Boards where I found this scan from some glossy. And off course added it to our Chairchez La Femme series.
Tulip Chair by Marcel Wanders
And then there is a Tulip Chair by Marcel Wanders…
To me Dutch designer Marcel Wanders seems to reinterpret a Thonet icon in Acryl with this Babel Chair for xO.
