Green AstroTurf-Covered Aeron Chair by Herman Miller and Makoto Azuma

AstroTurf Herman Miller Green AstroTurf Covered Aeron Chair by Herman Miller and Makoto Azuma The collaboration between Japanese botanic artist Makoto Azuma and furniture designer Herman Miller led to the creation of an unusual version of the Aeron Chair. This AstroTurf covered chair delivers all the important features of the Aeron Chair, with the interesting feature of having a distinct green “skin”. This chair comes as a natural response to the works of Makoto Azuma and Herman Miller, accentuating the decorative inclinations of the first artist and the exceptional design techniques of the latter. The body of the chair – including all the small details – were covered in a green AstroTurf skin, leaving only the wheels and moving parts bare. Just as Herman’s site says: “It’s all about making great design available to consumers“. You can see the AstroTurf covered chair this summer at the Herman Miller store in Tokyo, in the Marunouchi shopping district.

    Is it supposed to be ironic? Because I feel that adding that extra green texture, you’re using more product and therefore not contributing to fight whatever green products are supposed to fight without contradicting itself. Either way, the verdant green still makes a great statement.

  4. [...] Japon botanik sanatçısı Makoto Azuma ve Mobilya tasarımcısı Herman Miller tarafından tasarlanmış oldukları bu Aeron sandalye alışmışın dışında bir görünüme sahip. Sandalyenin klasik deri kaplı görünümüne farklı bir bakış açısı ile doğallık getirilmiş olan bu tsarımda sandalyenin hareketli aksamı dışında kalan tüm yerler çim halı ile kaplanmış. Sandalyedeki doğallık aslında birazda tepki olarak düşünülebilir ofis yada kullandığımız alanlarda doğaya bir uzaklık ve doğallığın yerini yapay suni ürünlerin almış olmasına bir tepki olarak görülebilir.Kaynak: freshome [...]
