When you think of Eames, Barcellona, and Corbusier it may bring thoughts of very high end and expensive patio furniture. The legends have been reintroduced with a new concept that has a very unique twist on a very classic design.
“Three idols of design history, the Barcelona Chair, the Eames’ Lounge Chair and Corbusiers LC2, were realized as a low-price, stacking plastic chair, including all requirements like material, production and stack-ability as an important determinant. The conceptual core was to transform the original idol’s messages: the plastic chairs lose the message of financial power and wealth. They keep their design message and their grace and they gain a message of moral integrity by liberalizing their archetypes from their stiff aura, like an ironic twist – and they fulfill an important intention of the Bauhaus: to make their designs available for all people.” The stacking and plastic nature make these mid-century classics perfect for use as patio and outdoor furniture.
