Designed in Vienna

The day before yesterday the exhibition "2000-2010. Design in Vienna" was inaugurated at Wien Museum. The show presents the most important representatives of a new generation of product designers working and living in Vienna. One exhibit is this hairy bar stool designed by Dejana Kabiljo which is part of a whole seating series.
The chairs and stools are all hand made out of horsetail hair in different colours. The bar stool version was chosen by Philippe Starck to grace the main bar of the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. It looks kind of funny, but I don´t think I would feel comfortable sitting on such a bar stool.
