  • Ugly. This is not design. Just a bad idea.

  • NOT A CHAIR CHANDELIER A CHAIRDELIER ANY WAY DOESN’T DO IT FOR US LOOKING AT THE PICTURES.

  • this is horrible and gives design a bad name. It takes no consideration for how a light functions and it’s form is has no redeeming qualities either. All those beautiful chairs look like junk hung from a rope.

  • Wow – I like this. As someone interested in furniture I’ve always worried that friends or family will buy me one of these Vitra miniatures as a gift, which I would then place on a shelf and it would collect dust thereafter. Instead I can start collecting to build a chandelier!
