chair #260

—Designed by Broberg Ridderstrale

Fab and fun chair! This chair originates from a workshop with the Campana brothers in 2003. The theme was “containment” and “constructing from deconstruction.” Furniture often take new shapes when they are being used. The user can, for example, alter the appearance of a chair by laying his/her coat over the seat and there by quietly stating “taken.” The Hood Chair borrows properties recognized in clothing/fashion to give the chair a look and function that communicates through other channels. —from the Yanko Design website

I know I am in the minority when I say this because clearly hoodies are in style, but in my opinion hooded sweatshirts should only be worn in four places; in the gym, on the beach, on the field, or on college campuses. OK, FIVE places... whilst robbing banks. I mean, WWCCT? (What would Coco Channel think?)
