    Not really a piece of furniture, it is a sculpture by Haim Steinbach

    [​IMG] Funny... The red sculpture reminds me of Wegners Flag Halyard Chair. [​IMG] [​IMG] Speaking of Wegner, while Google´ing the chair mentioned above, I stumbled over this installation: [​IMG] The Hans Wegner suite of furnishings was offered by Stockholm, Sweden, dealer Jacksons Design. The "Dolphin” lounge chair, right, priced at $125,000, was one of four made.

    Reminds me of the Star Wars Hoth action figure sets. The Tauntaun goes on the third shelf on the left. Luke hangs upside-down, bottom-right.

    ^he he,

    I have to be honest and say that I am not sure that I would ever love that object, no matter how long I lived with it. [​IMG]


    These are great though.

    In my opinion this is one of the most beautiful chairs of the 20th century -- especially the high-backed version.

    Organic Chair designed in 1940 by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen (Vitra reproduction)

    I don't worship at the Aalto alter, but I too have always loved that chair. The design seems way ahead of its time.

    Cool, but you better have guns, a really elaborate binary liquid explosive device , or biological weaponry to put in that thing. If Hollywood has taught me anything, its that you cannot put mere CLOTHES in something like this.

    Correct. But at least something had to die for Goyard and Vuitton!
