I used to think that a chair is just a chair. You know, something for you to sit on. Thanks to the History of Design class I took when I was pursuing my bachelor’s degree, I came to know a bit about the wonderful world of designer chair and furniture.
The chairs above, though, are the miniature version of the original chair, manufactured by REAC Japan. To be exact, it is 1/12 smaller than the original, so you can literally place it on the palm of your hand. These chairs would look great on every interior designer’s desks :) It comes in blind assortment boxes, which is also sold by Kidrobot. I know some of you are drooling, but some of these chairs are really rare. For example, that Ponyskin Chaise Lounge by Le Corbusier was only produced 3000 items worldwide. Since it has been produced/launched since last year, chances are a lot of the rare chairs are no longer in the blind boxes, but hey who knows! :)
Some of my favorite designs: Rietveld‘s armchair and zigzag chair, all Eames chairs (of course), especially the lounge chair, the ottoman, the elephant chairs, and the red plastic armchair with rocking base, Jacobsen‘s egg chair and ant chair, Mies Van Der Rohe‘s barcelona chair, and Nelson‘s marshmallow sofa.
I bet everyone is jealous by the working space slash home of Stephen and Shauna, the creator behind Something’s Hiding In Here. They are probably famous with their mustache creations that has oddly became a quirky trend in a lot of wedding photographs, although of course they are so amazingly talented making lots of other things. Their studio space (which is also where they live) is so inspiring. I would admit that what made me almost jumped off my chair was the peg board and how organize everything was in the studio. Ribbon holder, color markers in cups, highly organized thread spools, inspiration boards. Everything looks like what I have in my dream.
There is also an interview with a broader view of the space. Everything is just truly one of a kind. There’s no place like that, indeed.
