When I saw this chair my first reaction was “another chair clown”.

Out there there are several designers who, in one way or another, change a bit in a chair’s design to make a humouresque object of it. Rasmus Baekkel Fex is certainly one of them. Others are Pablo Reinoso, Helmut Palla, Robert Wilson, Janez SuhadolecPawel Grunert and Martino Gamper.


MCesChair by Helmut Palla

All of a sudden this chair came along on Helmut Palla‘s FaceBook timeline where he put it somewhere in 2013. Part Escher (its name is MCesChair, after M.C. Escher), but also part Rietveld this time and maybe Helmut didn’t think of Rietveld’s Steltman Chair. And a bit of Steffen Kehrle as well.

I feature chairs with horns seldom, but gladly make an exception for Helmut Palla who coined this rocking chair as Pushmi-Pullyu

Chair 5 by Pawel Grunert looks like a sort of bentwood chair avant la lettre, or – in Plain English – a tongue in cheek prehistorical bentwood chair..

About Pawel Grunert:

Born in 1965 in Warsaw, he studied at the Department of Interior Design of the Academy of Fine Arts of Warsaw. In 1990 he graduated with a honorable mention from Studio of Furniture for work titled M Y C H A I R. He design and made hundreds of furniture objects, sculptures and three-dimensional arrangement. What is worse – he still designs…

His works are placed in private collections and in musea in Poland and abroad. His works are published in books, magazines and on websites.
He works in the countryside near Warsaw. He is more a hobbyist than a designer. It could be said that he cultivates and loves furniture. All signs on sky and land indicate that it is unpunishable in polish legislation furnish-fil. Surely, he will reincarnate in the form of a chair…
