More Decent Nudevertising for Chairs: The Philippe Starck Ero|s Chairs

The Ero s Swivel chair, Photo Ultra Modern

I was wrong in my previous post: There are more nudevertisers for chairs. Only when I saw these pictures again, I realized I had seen them earlier.

At that earlier occasion I was not able to grab the photos efficiently and let it pass.

Now I have an efficient way of grabbing photos from all over the web, since I have installed a mini blog parallel to this blog: Chair Blog | Tumblr with widget and all and the possibility to read it in your News Reader.

So now I can keep you more up to date now. See for more background of a Tumblr account my other blog: Happy Hotelier – Tumblr and Organizing Your Blog(s).

About the chair

Why don’t they simply coin the chair Eros Swivel Chair? I believe they are afraid of reactions from rather puritan markets. But then: why advertise with, granted it is decent, nudity?

From this photo it is easy to see that this very modern chair goes well with a classic interior. i like it!
The Chair Designer is Philippe Starck, one of my favorites.
The Chair Manufacturer is Kartell

Glossy Chair Back Covers for Louis Ghost by Lionel Dean

FutureFactories is all about the “digital generation of one-off products.” Lionel Dean took the iconic Louis Ghost chair by Philippe Starck and developed unique chair backs and arms from laser sintered nylon, based on a generative computer script, to create Holy Ghost. Each new back is derived from a virtual design template that keeps re-building itself in real time. Lionel Dean points out that the use of this chair is a “comment on the possibilities and pitfalls of digital 3D data.” Pitfalls? Well, the information can be sent and used around the world or actual 3D objects can be scanned, and as Dean comments, “We are entering an age of digital manufacturing in which iconic designs can be sampled like music. This will bring both good and bad.”
