Was featured in the Groningen Museum earlier this year (and partly last year). I missed it, but one of my Flickr friends took this nice photo of the hot dog chair. Actually, according to an earlier post, the chair was designed by Jaime and his wife Nienke Klunder.
Rocking Hot Dog from Nienke Klunder and Jaime Hayon
A collaboration between Nienke Klunder and Jaime Hayon back in 2009, this giant purple rocking sausage chair is made in an edition of only 8 – as seen on Design Milk. Thoughts? I’m wondering if it’s sold out by now.
As made evident by my posting here on the Chair Blog and as one might remember from my introductory post, I appreciate chairs more than other seating objects. But, every once in a while, I would come across a stool or a bench that would really tickle my fancy and here comes the first sofa I feature! Both simple and stunning, it’s great for just about any space and I really like the variety of color options.
â€œI wanted the sofa to be based on a shell. A shell being hard on the outside, soft and welcoming on the inside,â€ explains HayÃ³n. â€œI wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic â€” thatâ€™s why we named it FAVN.â€ FAVN will be available in ten color selections: light grey, sage green, clear beige, taupe, chocolate, moutarde, red, violet, dark blue and black.
