Being the huge chair lover I am, and always will be,
seeing this article in the newest issue of Cereal magazine, made me so happy this morning.
As Charlie Lee-Potter writes:
“Chairs aren’t simply places to take the weight off your feet;
they mark territory, they give status.
“Chairs are both currency and metaphor, and we love them”.
I couldn’t agree more. Chairs really are “seat of influence” (Source).
Since I love the good old classics (from 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s),
for me it’s as much about the vision and the craftsmanship behind every chair,
as it is about the form and function.
The story behind the designers thoughts, and his feelings, when designing that special chair,
is for me just as precious as the chair itself.
That’s why I’ll never understand people who buy knock-offs and replicas
just to satisfy the need of owning a “designer chair”.
Enough about that, I’m sooo looking forward to read more about The Chair in Cereal mag.
