11 Notes

How long dihis take? Two years? Pretty funky And how mouch is it worth?

I would sit on a chair such as this despite the pain! So, who will design a cushion to match?

----- Sarah 23.12.08 23:17

the idea and the result is nice but not new, at all. It’s years since when some flower shops in Milan started selling natural decor objects with these ornamnental crystalls, but the ideas, go around and this is the result. But you have to say that….

He’s just a copycat of Greetje van Helmonds work…http://www.greetjevanhelmond.com/

Art or design, it’s still pretty awesome, and I imagine the basic method could be adapted to less painful design applications, such as natural crystal hall-stands, or lamps. Just thinking of happy little refracted light rainbows bouncing all over a space gives me a warm glow…

This is not Design. It is art.

We don’t sit on this chair.

That is amazing! If only it was bigger…but Im assuming its more art then an actual chair. I just watched a show on sunday about an entire cave filled with natural crystals the size of telephone poles. It looked like Krypton, it was amazing, and now you have this chair…..coincidence?

I’ll second on the sitting part. Time for a line of silk seat cushions?

----- Erica Stratton 13.10.08 11:30

----- Jay 13.10.08 08:01
