Photo of the day – Modernist red and white
Published by imageservices on August 12, 2008 in Photo of the day.
This image was taken at the Summit Restaurant which is located on the 47th floor of the Australia Square building that was designed by architect Harry Seidler. This revolving restaurant is 165 metres above Sydney and on a clear day you can see up to 80 kilometres away. The restaurant was redeveloped in 1999 by architects Burley Katon Halliday who kept to its modernist history and included the white Eero Saarinen tulip chairs, as seen in this shot, set against bright red carpet. Wikipeadia states that Eero Saarinen designed the Tulip chair in 1956 for the Knoll company of New York City.
Marinco photographed this for the exhibition Modern Times: the untold story of modernism in Australia.
