Via the designer pad, The Armory show considered one of the most important events in the art world. The Armory is the leading international contemporary and modern art fair showcasing works from the 20th and 21st centuries. Bade Stageberg Cox has developed “Street Seats, a furniture project created for the Pier 94 Coffee Bar at The Show. The 50 chairs, found abandoned on the streets of New York, were repaired and given a new life with a coat of taxi cab yellow paint. Like the city’s residents, the chairs are an eclectic mix, migrating 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.” These are just a few of the chairs from the project, but if you want to see all 50, you can do so here.
This project remind me myself while I was young (20′s) and with no money, I used to find chairs on the street and paint them ,what a great solution it was back than.
