swans fly high

1 Nov

Ahh running errands, a small joy.

Especially when you get to see classics like this:

The Swan Chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the Raddison Royal Hotel in Copenhagen and is made these days by The Republic of Fritz Hansen (who release a really cool design/news mag a few times a year.)

 These sexy ladies were sitting in the reception area of Norton Rose at 175 Eagle St. I asked to take a photograph and the receptionist suggested that if I was going to sit on it I should be careful, because it feels like you’re about to sit on the floor. I didn’t find that effect, and also found that they were really comfortable (they’re very nicely contoured). And I think I’ve fallen in love with upholstery felt.
