AstroTurf Aeron Chair! Need I say anything else?
To some degee I wished this classic web2.0 chair sensation was covered up in grass, but astro turf has some very intriguing quality to it for an office chair. I guess it also depends on which astro turf it is.
“The collaboration between Japanese botanic artist Makoto Azuma and furniture designerHerman 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.”
