Tiny Little Chairs: metal pendants featuring mid-century chair designs
How much do you like your classic chair designs? So much so that you'd be willing to wear them as jewellery? Well, that choice can be yours now with the Tiny Little Chairs pendants from Bruxe Design.
The necklaces are indeed both tiny, measuring 2 x 2cm each, and featuring chairs. Five chair icons in fact, all lovingly handmade on a miniature scale. There's the Pavilion pendant, which is basically Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona chair and then the Dining pendant, a mini version of Eero Saarinen's Tulip chair. The Eames' are well represented with the Scoop, Work and Bent pendant all being modelled on their designs.
Prices range from the seemingly affordable Bronze version of the Dining chair which retails for Canadian $140 (just over £80), to the out of my league Canadian $2500 for a gold Pavilion pendant. However, with that working out at just under £1500, that's still cheaper than the chair that inspired it.
