anatomic factory’s nata vintage chair
presenting the first “designer” hack. AnAtomicFactory sent me this ikea stefan chair hack, which they call nata vintage.
the italian on the site reads: “nata vintage stems from a reflection on the eternal return of the ‘old’ as a recurrent tendency of the market. new objects are created, not only with the idea of reproducing old styles, but also of simulating imperfections, the wear and tear of the materials, due to the passing of time: the new is already born old. therefore lets make a provocation: what better way to sell a vintage chair than to borrow a walking stick (stereotype of the old) and to replace it to a leg of the chair?”
i have no idea about all that but i do like how it looks. link.
