Yes, that chair is very famous. For me, it's one of the classics of industrial design along with Eero's table and others.

i believe the final design was made out of plywood. i read on one website that the american GIs were being maimed when their metal splints cracked. plywood was cheap and easily accessible. in addition to splints, they also created plywood stretchers, and airpline pilot seats.

They were also an advantage because of lightness and stacking storage capability. I believe you can buy one of the originals, un-used of course, for $55 bucks unwrapped or $70 with wrapping. I was surprised that they wern't more.

Have you guys seen examples of the furniture form the first White House? Do a search on them, absolutely beautiful pieces of handmade furniture. Wicked *** designs too, things you think people would've been afraid of in the 20th century.

Ok heres a good one,
one of my all time favorite designers;
Carlo Mollino


The guy was a complete quack, but could do anything.
He designed buildings, furniture, cars, planes, apparel, and also did some great photography. He was obsessed with sex, drugs, decoration and i heard taxes too, but i dont know what that means.













one of his own house,


and a tame one from the famous polaroid series done in the last fourteen yrs of his life,

http://www.plusminuszero.jp/store/index.html

In our everyday lives are hidden things that appeal to our sense of fun. We decided to find these things and, using our knowledge of design, create a series of products that encompasses these hidden elements. Despite there being an overflow of items around us, people don't seem to be moved by them in any way. Maybe it's because they're tired of the mundane. they're bored. So we decided to reset everything back to +_0 and start making the kind of things that people really want.

The Product Art Collection
The theme for the first +_0 collection is 'Product Art'. Product Art is a new genre born inevitably from the lifestyle we follow today. Products that are highly reliable, they can be enjoyed in much the same way as art is. The collection consists of products found in our daily lives household appliances, audio-visual equipment, interior furnishings and household miscellaneous items, but these products are sure to awaken your senses in a way that other products never have before. Product Art, while blending naturally into our lives, takes away commonplace ideas and common sense, and adds something that makes your heart beat faster. Not only the surprise you get when you first see something (First wow!), but also the feeling that suddenly hits you while using that thing; that 'Oh, I see', kind of feeling (Later wow!) await you. That's the beauty of Product Art.

THIS IS A HUMIDIFIER..!!..
LOVE the humidifier. Not least because it doubles as a noze cozy!

FunTimeParty, Disstop......beautiful

New Issey Miyake watch series..TO by Tokujin Yoshioka I want one of these or one from the Vakio 1 series.

The design is extremely minimal. I love the simplicity of it. It's supposed to look as if they only grabbed a lump of metal and shaped it.
