Plastic fantastic

Saturday, 2 July 2011

We keep bumping into these chaps over on, you know, that well-known auction website.  There's just something about them.  Not sure what - but we'll take 'em both please!  Designed by Rodolfo Bonetto for Driade in 1970, the 'Melaina' is a reworking of a traditional tub chair formed from a single piece of moulded fibreglass.

  1. Oooh! I love them! There's a melted dark chocolate thing about them.

    Are they expensive? Could they float to Australia?

  2. I saw these growing up at relatives home and I always liked them. They were white and I was so sad to know that they gave them away.

  3. Really cool chairs! Back in the early 80s I had a brown plastic dining table with a glass top and matching chairs. They were just that color and of a similar style.
