Bruxe X Uranium Tiny Little Chairs Pendants Now Available!
There was much brouhaha a few months back when the news first broke that Bruxe Design of Montreal would be pairing up with Uranium to create modern chair classic pendants. Now, the first five charming three dimensional casts of mid-century modern chairs are finally available for purchase online.
I must confess, I was disappointed to see that the gold was only 10k (however, you can order custom versions in 14k, 18k, 24k and even platinum). They cost a little more than I was hoping they would, but they are still incredibly lust worthy. And finally available.
Tiny Little Chairs is a series of collectible pendants celebrating mid century design. Each pendant represents a vintage chair which revolutionized furniture production and the design process (however, you'll notice, they couldn't use the actual names of the original chair designs by Eames, Saarinen, and Mies van der Rohe).
The designers of this era have forever changed the way we interact with design objects and their harmony within of our home, office and environment. These miniatures allow you to wear your love and appreciation for these pioneering designers and their iconic objects which continue to be benchmarks for today's designers.
The first series consists of five chairs (all shown below), The Scoop Chair, The Dining Chair, The Work Chair, The Bent Chair and The Pavilion Chair, each offered in solid gold, silver or bronze.
