Balancing act

Wednesday, 13 October 2010

We thought we'd do something a little different today and have opted for, ermmh, sculptures and installations.  Yes, I know what you're thinking, but we are staying true to our roots.  Well, sort of!!  Here's our small selection of some extremely amazing propositions.  We hope you enjoy them.

The Black Hole by Michel de Beoin, 2006.

Installation by Doris Salcedo, created for the International Istanbul Biennale in 2003 and included over 1550 chairs stacked between two city buildings.

Wallpaper* magazine commissioned designer Martino Gamper to create a modern-day Chair Arch for the London Design Festival in 2009. Using Ercol stacking chairs as his building blocks, Gamper built two overlapping arches in the courtyard of the Victoria & Albert Museum.

Alejandra Laviada creates sculptures with found objects in order to alter our conceptions of everyday objects.

Helmut Palla transforms found chairs into unique art pieces.

'Myth Monolith (Liberation Movement)' by Marc Andre Robinson, 2007
