Dining chairs – Photo of the day

Powerhouse Museum – Sydney

This image is a match to another shot that was posted a few days ago called ‘Modernist red and white’. This is a comment we received from Bob Meade

“When the restaurant reopened in 1999 after the BKH redesign it also included chromium plated wire mesh chairs similar to the Eames design manufactured by Herman Miller. They had a seat pad, but were uncomfortable nevertheless.”

I promised Bob I would post the image of the other chairs, so here they are. They were photographed at the Summit restaurant on the 47th floor of Australia Square. The wire mesh chairs are Harry Bertoia dining chairs from Knoll. You can read more about the redevelopment of the restaurant at Architecture Media.
