Aeron with Art

Remember Makoto Azuma’s Herman Miller Aeron chair covered with Astroturf? Well Herman Miller Japan is now expanding the initiative to encompass 4 additional artists and their unique interpretation of the iconic chair. In collaboration with more trees, musician Ryuichi Sakamoto’s environmental organization, Aeron with Art will offer each of these one-of-a-kind chairs up for sale (500,000 yen) in a charity event in which all proceeds will go towards helping victims of the 3.11 earthquake and tsunami.

(to be honest I don’t get this one)

Ancestor of Chair-by Yosuke Hayano
(Hayano worked at Zaha Hadid for 1 year before setting up shop. See the influence?)

The chairs will be on display tomorrow (July 28, 2011) at Art Fair Tokyo, subsequently being moved to the Herman Miller Store in Marunouchi. (see details below)
