Cool furniture, design objects and desiderata - Page 13

^ Hmm, I guess that is true of some Modernists: the ones whose work was very sensitive to the materials they used (Carlo Scarpa immediately comes to mind). But I can imagine that a patina might have irritated Mies van der Rohe or Marcel Breuer -- their objects were never really designed for the "real world" ...in the minds of those architects, their objects existed in a kind of ideal Modern universe -- much like a Brancusi sculpture.

I think Hypersonic is more right also. The patina is something we have come to appreciate, but the modernist architects saw their design as "finished" when they were done working on an idea.

Kjærholm prototypes (1954 - namen unknown) (1953 - namen unknown) we all know Verner Panton and his design. It is a bit funny to think off, that Kjærholm was ay ahead of him.... This is from 1953, take a look (and notice how the curves on the (prototype) chair is much more elegant than Pantons..) the same in steel wire

^Thanks for posting those Jacob Kjærholm was a genius.

This is my favourite design. He did it while he was a student.

The PK25 is mad cool. We have a couple of Gisele chairs at home, which is IMO Aristeu Pires's take on the PK25 coton rope concept.

One of my favorite chairs. I don't like the new Barber Osgerby designs for Established and Sons. My desk is their loop desk, and I love that. Also the Portsmouth bench is beautiful.

^ The loop desk is great.

Originally designed in the 1920s by Jean Puiforcat, it was only recently actually made as a special edition from Puiforcat. Sterling Silver and sycamore wood tea and coffee service.
