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.
Horny by Helmut Palla
I feature chairs with horns seldom, but gladly make an exception for Helmut Palla who coined this rocking chair as Pushmi-Pullyu
And another Helmut Palla Chair concoction. The Chairchill. Clearly waiting for the lady to take place and fill the lines with her curves. Hence placed in our Chairchez La Femme series. Also to let you know that after some searching I found Helmut’s FB page back…no I’m not linking to FB anymore….they’ve earned enough already with their Ipo yesterday. Wonder what the their opening will be on Monday….
I discovered Vienna, Austria, based Helmut Palla only after he had discovered us via FaceBook. Then he revamped his site (could have done a better job imho). But when I discovered Tristan Cochrane‘s Fish Rocking Chair I also discovered that Saatchi Online also represents Helmut Palla (and are providing me with better photos to share with you than dear Helmut himself).
This Cha Cha Rocking chair is for sale there for $6,500.00.
I hope to visit him once in his studio when Vienna is my travel destination again (usually once or twice a year).
