To celebrate 50 years of the iconic Arne Jacobsen Egg chair, artist Tal R has created 50 unique designs of the chair, which were revealed this past week at the furniture fair in Milan. The 50 designs will be exhibited at Galleria Carla Sozzani through April 27, and then will travel to galleries and museums around the world.
The patchwork-quilt Egg chair designs are made from materials collected in such far corners as Istanbul and Denmark. "The whole point was to make a chair that tells a multitude of stories. So the pieces of cloth had to be full of life. It should look a bit as if it was homemade," explains Tal R.
I love this unexpected take on the Egg chair. Are you a fan as well?
