Happy Holidays

Taranta Cathedral by Gio Ponti

With this picture of a chair like Cathedral designed by Gio Ponti, really it’s like a Royal Chair, I would like to wish all Chair Blog readers Happy Holidays! The cathedral is in Taranto.

Chair 777

Chair 777

Chair 777 is a very clever design. With a twist of your arm you can use it to sit, relax or lounge.

It’s made from recyclable cardboard by the German artists/designer collective Die Fabrik which means The Factory. Its members are probably located in Würzburg [in a prior version I had mentioned Berlin, apparently erroneously].
