Desktop Designer Chairs - which one will you get?
Remember the Panini football stickers? As a kid, you bought packet after packet to fill an album - constantly buying the same ones in the hope of finding that elusive missing player. I sense that the Desktop Designer Chairs are the design equivalent.
The chairs are miniatures (1/12 scale) of mid-century and vintage classics but each one is boxed in a way that you cannot tell what's inside. So you can order one from a certain series, but you'll never be sure which ones will arrive through the post.
Firebox is currently selling series one and series four. Series one includes the Heart Cone Chair by Verner Panton (1959), Tulip chair by Eero Saarinen (1956), S Chair by Verner Panton (1959), Pastil Chair by Eero Aarnio (1967), Barcelona Chair by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1929), Eiffel Chair by Charles Eames (1950), Lounge Chair by Charles Eames (1945) and the Red Blue Chair by Gerrit Rietveld (1923). Series four features the Grand Confort by Le Corbusier (1928), Marshmallow Sofa by George Nelson (1956), Ball Chair by Eero Aarnio (1966), Mae West Lips Sofa by Salvador Dali (1937), Hill House by Charles Mackintosh (1904) and the Chaise Longue by Le Corbusier (1928).
