Nano Rietveld Red and Blue, Zig Zag and Steltman Chairs

NanoTray is a site where Maarten (or Max) Meerman, a Dutch rocket scientist, shares his hobby of miniaturizing stuff. It is not exactly nano sized, but close: The scale is 1:144.
For the celebration of the Rietveld Year back in 2010 Max made this Rietveld Red and Blue miniature , but also a Zig Zag and a Steltman Chair. All are on loan to the Utrecht Centraal Museum which has probably the largest Rietveld collection.

Funny part of the story is: I found him via Pinterest and he found me via Twitter…full circle round.

Not Another Egg Chair!

Not-another-Egg-Chair!
I came across this “Egg Chair” whic actually is not a chair at all!

Le Nid is a small egg ramekin on a stainless stand resembling a bird’s nest. It’s designed by Christian Ghion in collaboration with French chef Pierre Gagnaire (owner of a Michelin Star restaurant) for the “Love of Egg” collection. Manufactured by Alessi.
