Light My (Pants On) Fire
If you just couldn't make it to Milan's 2004 Salone Internazionale del Mobile [translation: Sexiest Furniture Fair Ever] this April, then you're probably 'bummed' about missing the world premiere of Frank O. Gehry's new SuperLight chair. Manufactured by Emeco, the famous Pennsylvanian crafters of the 1006 Navy Chair, SuperLight weighs in at only 6.5 lbs. and subtly sways and shifts with the sitter. Also premiering in Milan was an Eames Demetrios film about the design process of SuperLight. Lucky for you crazy Chicagoans, you can check out both chair and film next week at DWR's Chicago Tree Studio. Gehry won't be there, but E.D. and Gregg Buchbinder (of Emeco) will be providing "an enlightening evening." If you check it out, tell us about it!
