The Naughty Chair…

Casamania launched the amazing Him & Her chairs, designed by Fabio Novembre, at the furniture fair in Milan last month.  They’re an evolution of Verner Panton’s Panton Chair.  You know, the type of things you appreciate at the MoMA but don’t necessarily want to buy for own home.  Well, actually, I wouldn’t mind one in my bedroom… a naughty chair… actually, I wouldn’t mind that one little bit… 

Interestingly, the muse for these chairs was the Book of Genesis: The Lord God crafted man from the earth and blew into him the breath of life and man was alive. And then the Lord God took a rib that he had taken from the man and from it crafted a woman and lead the woman unto the man. Now both the man and his wife were naked, and they felt no shame.
