How cool is this? ‘Street Seats’ is a furniture project developed by Bade Stageberg Cox for the Pier 94 Coffee Bar at The Armory Show, a leading contemporary and modern art fair in New York which takes place every March on Piers 92 & 94 in central Manhattan.
The 50 chairs, all found abandoned on the streets of New York, were repaired and given a new lease on life with a coat of taxi cab yellow paint. Like the city’s residents, the chairs are an eclectic mix. They migrated throughout the fair during its five-day run. The bottom of each chair is stamped and documented with the date and location it was recovered.
I just love both the idea AND the bright sunshine colour they chose:
Sadly, the Ice Chair has already sold. I can see this one on a porch looking out onto the street somewhere in Upstate New York…
