Quote by Vincent van Gogh

Two paintings of Vincent van Gogh with chairs have been on our top hit list for a long time: the Van Gogh Chair and his Gaugin Style Chair.

Now I’ve found out there are more through this quote:

I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process

Via Joost Geurtsen.

Chairs and Body Painting

What better way to start a day than with these two very nice ladies whose bodies are painted fully matching the covers of the chairs they are seated on?

Two other Dutch ladies, Iepke Seebregts and Saskia Hoek have created Gekleurd Naakt (i.e. Colored or Painted Nudes) which tells a story about their body painting travels all over the world resulting in a very nice series of culturally connected body painting photography.

You can find a selection of the body art on Pinterest

They have made a Body Painting Book as well. The second photo is the cover of the book. That makes the post apt for our chairvertizing category.

I also have to think about Natura Morta by Alexa Meade

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.
