Updated Rey and Charles Eames hanger…
This is an image I found this morning and couldn’t stop smiling. It pictures the work of Columbian artist Gabriel Sierra. It is so fresh and inspiring! Especially comparing to the work of most of the designers that are going ,,experimental,, and ,,artistic,,… Like the chair (pic.) of the young (and awarded) Dutch designer Pepe Heykoop. I’m not trying to say that designers can’t or shouldn’t do free, artistic work. It’s more about how they position it and where they get their inspiration from.
“Hang it all” originally designed for Tigrett Enterprises Playhouse division in 1953. Material : Steel frame with white powder-coat finish, solid wood balls painted in ninecolors (purple, yellow, blue, green, red, pastel pink, mustard, bold pink, and black) 50cm x 35cm x 16 cm ( each one ). Reedited by Vitra.
