Limited Edition Gold Panton Mini Chair

While we’re at the subject of gold, let me also share this little beauty – a mini version of a timeless classic, Panton chair, in, you guessed it, gold! Limited to only 500 pieces, the chair was made to celebrate the opening of the Panton Chair exhibition at the Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery in 2009. The chair comes in a 1/6th scale to the original.

Golden Apple Seat

Golden Apple Lounger

The five-star Golden Apple Boutique Hotel in the heart of Moscow, Russia, is most famous for its exclusive interior design by Canadian architect Raphael Shafir, but to us, chair appreciators, the most interesting thing deserving of our special attention is their fabulous giant golden seat shaped to look like a nibbled at apple.

The apple is shiney and golden on the outside and is positioned in the hotel lobby with its whole side facing the window to one of the Moscow’s central streets (passing by the hotel you see the apple inside, but to know you can seat in it you’d need to walk in!), the hollow side of the apple is upholstered in plushy black fabric and is big enough to fit 3 slim persons.

Pictured here is Miss Russia 2006 Tatiana Kotova during her visit to the hotel. Photo courtesy of Golden Apple Boutique Hotel Facebook page.
