Similar to the article on lifts, I read an article, then could only remember small details and couldn't find it again. This time, the article was on a bivalve/mollusc chair. Well, not really, but that's what I could remember. The article is about how copying designer furniture, especially in the UK, is "ok" and not shameful, unlike, say, designer bags:
The chair they talk about is the Barcelona chair by Mies Van Der Rohe. Now, without looking it up: it's a leather chair commonly found in waiting rooms and receptions, and looks like a bivalve (clam. Ok it's really only artistically similar.) Do you know which chair I'm talking about?
