Pioneer chef and restaurateur Jamie Oliver has challenged a select group of artists and designers to lend their creativity and customize Arne Jacobsen’s classic Ant chair. The one-of-a-kind designer chairs will be auctioned off to raise funds for his The Better Food Foundation which trains unemployed youngsters to become professional chefs. Designer like Paul Smith, Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen and Christopher Bailey for Burberry are among the famed few invited to participate in The Big Chair Project.
The chairs are on show at the Republic of Fritz Hansen showroom at 13 Margaret Street, London W1W 8RN until the final event in October, when Emin’s design will be revealed.
