You have likely seen photos of Swan chairs in popular interior design magazines (Or perhaps, you may have even run across “the real thing” somewhere?). If so, its iconic curves have likely made a lasting impression upon you!
Its Danish furniture manufacturer was Republic of Fritz Hansen whose artisans were able to execute the innovative and complex design. Take a look at this video showing all of the extensive detailing present in every original Swan chair.
SUITE New York has now launched the Pink Swan Project. This fundraiser features the work of nineteen renowned interior designers, architects, and fashion designers who have each customized an iconic Swan chair to benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
These chairs are to be displayed at the Gagosian Gallery on Madison Avenue, beginning October 1st, and then moved to SUITE New York’s Flatiron showroom on October 27th for an invitation-only cocktail party. However, the chairs will be available via online auction on charitybuzz.com for the entire month of October. Eighty percent of the proceeds from the chairs sales will go to BCRF.
Some of my favorites include those that have the signature Breast Cancer Awareness pink color incorporated into their designs.
However, it is hard to resist the creativity of some of these other unique designs, as well!
There are just far too many to choose from! Click this LINK to see photos of each chair and to read about the individual designer inspirations!
