The photograph of Christine Keeler in the metro this morning taken in 1960’s propelled the Arne Jacobson chair to stardom! (The actual chair in the shot was in-fact a copy) [via V&A]
It only seems to me, the perfect excuse “just for fun” to post our own versions….a chance to give our chairs a chance at stardom!
I’m not suggesting we start ripping our clothes off! Remember, we are an office furniture firm… So of course it’s all about the chair! 🙂
This leads me on to thinking of chairs that would be suitable… and not so suitable for such a chair pose!
The Eon Chair…. I’ve not tried… maybe later… due to the polyurethane curved shell this is perfectly comfortable for one’s bottom, However, I am unsure if this will fit the bill for sitting backwards. – perhaps a sideways pose will work here!
Twist! – This seemed like such a close match with its beech shell and superb design. Another true winner for forward seating only thou perhaps? :/
But fear not! If you are looking for a chair to re-enact the famous Christine Keeler pose – I think we have a close winner with the Smile Chair, which is guaranteed to be comfortable and most importantly with backwards seating; maintain your modesty!
