The ‘Icons’ is a series of iconic chairs made of wire frame unveiled at the Milan Furniture Fair last month. Jan Plecháč revisited the Louis chair, the Red and Blue chair by Gerrit Rietveld, the Kubus by Josef Hoffmann, and last but not least, the Fatboy Beanbag.
Designer Jan Plechac says of the series: ‘ The Icons seating furniture pieces are an attempt to wipe the line between interior and exterior furniture, plus interior and exterior as such. It is an attempt to find stories of iconic forms in new contexts of a mentally contrasting environment. It is about ideas of the relationship between function and form…..The selection of individual pieces was determined by several priorities. The first and most essential one was how much a certain object or style is known among the public. For this reason, my number one choice was the Louis chair, i.e. the most famous icon whose typical curves represented a very rewarding theme for wire lines.’
