Iconic chair is a term to describe a furniture (in this case is chair) that made by a well known architect, interior designer, or furniture maker that claimed internationally. For example, below are some iconic chairs: George Nelson’s Marshmallow Sofa
, Arne Jacobsen’s Egg Chair
, Eero Aarnio’s Ball Chair
, Ludwig Mies van Der Rohe’s Barcelona Chair
, Verner Panton’s Panton Chair
, Le Corbusier’s Chair
, and Charles and Ray Eames’s Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman
. If you regularly check architecture or interior website, you will easily find them in those interior photographs.
In this post, I will specially discuss about Barcelona Chair. Why? Because it appears in many movies. Include Personal Taste
, a Korean Drama Series. Seriously, my point of view about iconic chair is changed 180 degree since I watch it in Korean Movie, I mean it really ICONIC because it’s not an European or American stuff only.
You can read the history about Barcelona Chair in link above. And why it became so well known not only because it made by a famous architect, but also because its timeless design. Just like Taecyeon
said in his rap part on Reebok Classic’s Song
. It’s timeless just like plastic, it’ll never changed cause it’s classic. 🙂
It made at 1929, but it still fits with recent interior design, it fits with many types of room, and it fits many countries which have different styles. It timeless, it classic, so no doubt it called iconic. Below, it appears in movies.
Okay, to be honest I haven’t watched the movie yet and I got the information from the internet. I should watch it soon to see the chair myself.
I got it from the same website as above, http://www.retrofurnish.com
. While writing this, I learn that there’re many interesting interior websites that I should explore more..
It’s 1982 movie! The Barcelona Chair is seen on the rear left side, unfortunately I haven’t installed photoshop yet so I cannot edit the picture to clear it up. There’re also seen Eames Lounge Chair still on the left side, and Achille Castiglioni’s Arco Lamp near it.
I have watched the movie, but I don’t realize about the chair.. -_____- ” Should I watch it again?
