The Viewing Chairs

tall chairs

The good news is that it was warm enough to wear shorts the weekend. This is especially good news considering that sad patches of snow still littered the ground last weekend. We are approaching that annoying time of year where cold fronts seem cosmically unjust; we’re sick of the layers we were so excited about wearing last fall. The longer days ahead are literally the promise of a warmer and brighter future.

The bad news is that I do not speak Russian, so information on The Viewing Chairs above is scant. Luckily, there’s not much to explain. Designed by Megabudka, the high chairs that make up the project are installed on Vido Island in Greece, where folks can climb up the chairs for a better view. There’s something a quirky and precarious about about the height of the chairs that’s alluring, but I’m not sure that an infant roosting a few meters above the ground in something quirky and precarious is an omen of good news at all. At least the chairs provide a different perspective, and warmer weather is just over the horizon.

    @Anton: thanks for sharing; I’d probably be a little hesitant to climb up the chairs, but not after a few glasses of birra.
