For this Sunday Funnies........... Milan 2008
GWEN: What is it???
HINT: It will make you "appreciate how some of the simplest furniture pieces can be re-interpreted in any number of ways."
DENISE: Did anyONE guess???
GWEN: A chair-!!
The Designer of the Year, Tokujin Yoshioka, has applied fabric squares to appear like petals, to allow the chair's user (that's us) to feel embraced, evoking a similar feeling to that of receiving a bouquet of flowers.
The "petals" of the chair are designed to return to their original form once a person stands up. Yoshioka explains that "the new chair Bouquet uplifts the sitter as well as a flowr bouquet does it to the receiver. The vibrant colors would evoke one's remembrance."
Remembrance, indeed-! This bouquet will be hard to forget.........especially on Valentine's Day.
A la prochaine,
Denise et Gwen
