Moon Boot Love And Classic Interior Design…
My grandfather had a love for Danish furniture, he had it in some of his houses in Austria, having spent the week in Denmark, my friend, photographer Thorsten Overgaard took me to the Paustian shop in his hometown Aarhus.
And I fell in love with this chair, here is it’s story:
Chair “La Chaise” by Charles & Ray Eames, 1948
Charles and Ray Eames designed La Chaise in 1948 for a competition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, inspired by “Floating Figure”, a sculpture by Gaston Lachaise. It is the unbelievable elegance of this assertive seating sculpture that enables any number of sitting and reclining positions, which is so very appealing.
It has long since established itself as an icon of Organic Design.
Chair “La Chaise” available from www.paustian.dk.
