Found this statue of a famous Italian journalist, Indro Montanelli, in a park in Milano last year, quietly typing on his stool.
Maarten Baas informed us his Empty Chair for Amnesty International had been on display at Ventura Berlin 26 October – 29 October 2011.
(and this is post number 2,800)
Remember my post The Chair and The Nobel Price with The Empty Chair which was reserved for Liu Xiaobo who could not attend the ceremony, because he was detained by the Chines government?
The occasion has inspired young German designer Tino Seubert to design a Nobel Peace Price Chair. A nice one, I would say.
Tino Seubert was born on December 29, 1986 in Forchheim, a suburb of Nuremberg in Germany. He went to Bolzano (Italy) to study design. In Paris he spent a year doing graphic design and he worked there for a Gallery.
