Helmut Palla’s twisted, surreal chairs at Vienna Design Week
Held at Vienna Academy of Fine Arts Atelierhaus, the show will be focused on his intriguing, and often amusing, reworkings of chairs. It will investigate ‘sitting limits, multi-dimensional sitting, functional sitting, around-the-corner sitting, the bond between seat and seat-taker’. And if you’re still sitting comfortably, check out Sally Jeffery’s piece about chairs for children here.
