STEFAN SAGMEISTER - TALKATIVE CHAIR





































Talkative Chair 
"The text of this chair simply refers to a diary entry written while sitting on our balcony in Bali where the chair itself would ultimately be placed.
Here is the complete text:
I very much love sitting here looking out over the Sayan Ridge with a large pot of coffee and a medium size cigar and letting my mind go. Life is still good. Just saw a spectacular sunrise and now the incredible lush greens of the rice paddies pop my eyes out.
My big toe appears to be very dirty.
But it's just a bit of congealed blood underneath my skin, acquired during a morning walk through the jungle with John. The small mosquitoes are a pain, so tiny they are basically invisible. Their bites itch for days even without scratching.
Stop sitting here staring into the air.
Better get going! Take a shower and start the day proper, there certainly is enough to do here, I have already a whole list ready to go."
Stefan Sagmeister

SARAN YEN PANYA - CHEAP ASS ELITES











Swedish designer Sara Yen Panya's "Cheap Ass Elites" is a chair installation which criticizes what is socially considered "high" and "low" in regards to design. This project is an illustration of a world where there's no rich ass or poor ass. An ass is an ass.

GEORGES FRANJU - JUDEX, 1963

 

In her study of French cinema since the French New Wave, Claire Clouzot described Franju's film style as heavily influenced by his predecessors. Clouzot described it as "a poignant fantastic realism inherited from surrealism and jean Painlevé science cinema, and influenced by the expressionism of Lang and Murnau".
Franju's focus on the film was on visuals which he claimed marked a director as an auteur. He claimed to "not to have the story writing gift" and was focused on what he described as the "putting into form" of the film.
