Yeah! The Brits used to and still would like to “Sit on the World” 🙂
Preserving English tradition is an important concept throughout my work. Using ceramics, contemporary processes and materials I create objects which celebrate British Society and domestic wares. I reinvent familiar domestic objects into contemporary pieces which echo traditional values through their forms

Functionalfate.org – Jens Thiel’s Monobloc Plastic Chairs Weblog was a blog tat disappeared in the meantime. I noticed it already when I was playing with the idea of starting my own Blog devoted to Chairs. Jens is addicted to the monobloc plastic chair:
His aim is collecting plastic chairs and work on an extensive illustrated monograph (partly to be seen in an article of ArtReview), to establish a museum exhibition and a documentary feature about this most successful and most hated furniture of all human creation: the monobloc plastic chair. He warmly invites everybody to contribute photos, stories or even chairs.
Well Jens, contact me: I have some of those for you:-)
Coming to think of it: This much hated monobloc plastic chair could be an excellent attribute for the Little People A tiny street art project Blog.
Update: Functinal Fate has disappeared but I found a German alternative dedicated to the monoblock chair: PlastikStuhl. Moreover: Jens Thiel‘s Flickr account seems still in operation.
