7 electric chairs
in celebration of his 70th birthday, bob wilson, the famous american director, stage designer and master of visual experimentation,
has created with italian furniture company kartell, a series of seven chair-sculptures.
Entitled ‘7 electric chairs… as you like it’, the collection draws its name from william shakespeare’s comedy ‘as you like it’and the celebrated monologue of the melancholy jaques who speaks of the seven ages of man (act II, scene VII).
each chair is of a similar size, but different in shape and made of transparent polycarbonate – the material that has more than characterized the kartell design brand – and in which white colored neon light is inserted.
