Proust Geometrica Chair

Last week Alex posted this crazy chair called the Prickly Pear Chair which I thought I was pretty crazy until I found the chair above. The Proust Geometrical Chair was designed by Alessandro Mendini in 2009 for Cappellini which features the intense pattern you see in the photos, which personally reminds me of dazzle camouflage. It also kind of reminds me of the unnecessary indulgence of the 80’s, mixing a classic shape with a contemporary pattern. Don’t think I’d ever want this in my home but it’s certainly fun to look at.

    I would definitely put this in my apartment, it sure is flashy, but it’s beautiful.

    A bit freaky but chic.

    This chair isn’t really my style, but what a work of art it really is! I think if you put this in an atmosphere of minimalism and neutral colors, this chair would sing out loud.

    I’m sorry but you wrote the designer’s name wrong, it’s Mendini, not Mellini.

    @Oisin – Doh! I think I got it mixed up with Cappellini.
