Oh Japan, how I love thee collaborations… Aeron with ART popped up on the radar a few weeks back with Sit on Green by Makoto Azuma’s (“Astro turf Aeron”). Now more have popped up and oh are they pretty. It’s always nice to see how everyday items can be interpreted into art. I personally prefer the Chadwick but hey Aeron was first right?
“Aeron with ART is an art charity project with Herman Miller Japan and more trees. The project is for the best artists and architects of modern times to customize Aeron Chair, the best seller product of Herman Miller, into one-of-a-kind pieces of art in their unique concepts. The sales profit will be donated to aid project LIFE311 for Tohoku Area Pacific Offshore Earthquake to build temporary housings with Japanese wood materials.”
