Nendo's Mimicry Chairs
A. MA. ZING. I would have so loved to have seen this in London. Nendo's Mimicry Chairs at the V&A. Featuring this now for three reasons: 1) It's awesome, poetic and provocative, 2) the festival ends TODAY (tear), and 3) it's the perfect follow-up and inspiration in light of the Battery chair competition I shared yesterday. So here are the goods:
Nendo’s project is titled Mimicry Chairs and comprises a series of elegant chair installations appearing in varying locations throughout the ever amazing V&A Museum for the London Design Festival 2012. I just LOVE the contrast of the ethereal, evolving, ghost-like chairs and the often ornate museum. They look so at home, marching through the classical space. I love when I have the opportunity to explore these stunning juxtapositions in my interiors work. I hope I have more of them in the future! Back to the chairs though -- their simple archetype is made from pressed and punched metal which has been finished in white to give it that clean, transcendent look. Gorge!
