How different would it be to have the very classics of chair design reinterpreted as stackable plastic chairs? Dirk Winkel, from the University of The Arts Berlin, finds out in his project ‘A Stacking Hommage’ (sic). I guess these are really classics – even when recast in another (cheap) material, they still retain an elegant form and proportion – that’s probably what made them real classics through the many decades.
For those of us who aspire to but can’t afford the real classics, we’re going to be disappointed again, as these are not for sale.
Dirk has some other works in his portfolio site here too.
