Re-Issue Re-Imagine Re-Make : Bert Loeschner’s Re-interpretations of the Fibreglass Rocking Chair by Charles and Ray Eames - by Elisabeth Darby
Icons of twentieth century furniture occupy a prominent position in the contemporary interior and design landscape. Although often conceived decades ago, many have remained in production, while others are brought back into the marketplace on a regular basis. Several of these iconic works have also been the subject of re-interpretation by designers, artists and other creatives. These re-imaginings constitute a notable aspect of design practice in the new millennium, just as appropriation and remix are integral themes in contemporary art.
