APASIONADOS POR LAS SILLAS

Hace unos días Kevin Roberts, CEO Mundial de Saatchi & Saatchi, publicó una nota en su blog que quiero compartir con vos, pues en efecto, somos apasionados por las sillas que en su diseño se atreven y aportan a la experiencia más allá de su funcionalidad. Este es su texto:

My dear friend, Jorge Oller from Costa Rica, and I share many
interests, good wine, great music, and Lovemarks amongst them. As I
have posted
before, we also have a passion for chairs. Over the years, chairs have
been a fascination to me and a few weeks back I took possession of the
Villain Chair. This chair first appeared in Sean Connery’s Bond
adventure You Only Live Twice. It was Ernst Stavro Blofeld’s key prop, along with the Persian cat and the eye scar Donald Pleasance wore in the part. Now SUCK UK
have just introduced the chair in a gorgeous Cadbury Dairy Milk colored
leather with 20 aluminum panels angled to cushion you in decadent,
criminal luxury. Naturally it also swivels for maximum malevolence.

This
chair now has pride of place in my TriBeCa loft alongside La Chaise
from Charles and Ray Eames, Shiro Kuramata’s 'How High is the Moon'
chair, and hanging from the loft ceiling is the Eero Aarnio Bubble
Chair. On the deck I have a range of Frank Miller’s 1960’s iconic
garden furniture, alongside the more up-to-date Philippe Starck Bubble
Club armchair and sofa.

In Auckland, I have a bunch of chairs
from Ross Lovegrove, David Trubridge, Marcel Breuer, Philippe Starck
(including the Royalton Sofas and armchairs I first saw when that hotel
opened a few years ago), the classic Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Chair
and Day Bed, Verner Panton Heart chair and, my favorite, the Milana
chair from Jean Nouvel.

In
Grasmere, I have Eero Aarnio’s Ball chair, along with two amazing Peter
Blake deckchairs Ro surprised me with for my birthday last month.

When
I visited Jorge in his home in San José, Costa Rica, a couple a years
back, it felt like home away from home with many of the same pieces
scattered around Jorge’s home and the agency. He’s too warm and
friendly to have the Villain Chair though.

p.s. You can see most of these on www.regencyshop.com and the Villain Chair on www.suck.uk.com.

Nota: En efecto, no tengo una Villain Chair, aunque le faltó agregar que además no cuento ni de cerca con la profundidad de su chequera! En Costa Rica, comparto esta afinidad con Judko Rosenstock, de Euromobilia, y Duilio Chiapella de Artiv, aunque en sus casos, se trata de su negocio también.

Tema liviano para un fresco y agradable sábado de diciembre.

  1. i really wish i had your chequera to buy all this chairs. En serio cada una despierta sentimientos diferentes de tantas epocas y todos ellos son hermosos. es como poder tener una representacion viva y timeless del artista y asi mismo usable.
