I am taking a hiatus from blogging. The posts I now add will be unedited and unpolished, please forgive me. I am using this platform as a storage place for interesting things. I am currently focusing on editing wikipedia articles on contemporary art instead. I encourage you to do the same and to follow still very active blogs like hyperallergic, c-monster, bldgblog, and more. thanks you.
yes please. Nendo designed chairs that have the appearance of floating. The seat and back are wooden, and the legs are clear acrylic specially painted to mimic the wood. Now I am a purist most of the time, and fake wood usually makes me cringe, yet that is because it is cheap and pretending to me something better. This is fake for the sake of concept and aesthetic, not cost. I want one.
