Chair Porn: “Dialogue” Design Exhibition

November 18th, 2009 · No Comments

A recent Danish design show named “Dialogue – A Chair That Is Up For Negotiation“, part of the Cabinetmakers Autumn Exhibition in Copenhagen, revealed 35 new chair designs inspired by the upcoming climate change summit COP15.

Would Obama, Netanyahu or Hu Jintao all pick the same chair for negotiations during the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit, COP15? Might the chair be a sandbox? Two chairs tied together by one length of fabric? Might it resemble a fountain with water jets indicating different points of view? Be a transparent wall? Or a chair with flexible legs? Does it even make sense to think that a chair can make a difference?

Personally, I just enjoy the eye candy.  Here are my favorites from the lot alongside the names of their designers.
