Thanks to Luis of Mocoloco I came across Pablo Reinoso, an Argentinean sculptor and designer who has designed chairs of his own:
Pablo Reinoso High Chair
But for me, and maybe for many others he is more important as the sculptor of Thoneteando, or variations on old Thonet chair designs which he gives a twist:
Rising Thonet ?
Skirted Thonet, or Thonet ‘a la Hawaienne?
Until September 8, 2007 there is an exhibition of the Thoneteando series in Buenos Aires, in Gallerie Ruth Benzacar.
I love it as Thonet afficionado!
One thought on “Pablo Reinoso: Thoneteando – Variations on Thonet”
There is great ingenuity to Reinoso’s work, isn’t there? And this video honors that, with its sense of humor and discovery. The juxtaposition with fashion is witty, as well – who hasn’t wondered how they get the models into some of the runway looks we see?)
