Ben K. Mickus Relief Chair added to Cooper Hewitt Collection

A long time ago we featured the Relief Chair by Ben K. Mickus.

Last year Cooper Hewitt added it to its permanent collection.

I revisited his site because I remembered it is exemplary with respect to public relations: For instance Bloggers who have mentioned the chair get a whole page (click “news” and “blogs” on his site):

Mickus-Projects-Press-Page-Bloggers

Exemplary in design and simplicity: The thumbnails are linked to a pdf of the article and the www link under the thums link to the actual article.

Fondly I saw the old layout of our site: For a long time we’ve used the WordPress default theme:

chair-blog-relief-chair

So you can see blogs do change their lay out. Also I’ve noticed I changed the title of the post and I see other things I don’t do anymore. Oh Nostalgia.

On the other hand I’d hoped to see Ben going on with designing some more chairs.

Note: in writing this post I got so annoyed with the load time of the posts and pages due to load time consuming social bookmarks that I’ve totally disabled them. Sorry lads and lasses!
