'celebrating the cross 1' lounge by humans since 1982

swedish designers per emanuelsson and bastian bischoff of studio humans since 1982 have sent us images of their new project lounge ‘celebrating the cross 1’. the lounge made with a steel cross which is embedded into a net-like metal panel.

  • I like the way the designers use the wires and intertwine it I can imagine how much time it took to weave the structure. I don’t see it as anything religious, the cross is just something for stable support.

  • I totally agree with this comment ! I’m really fed up with that kind of project because underneath “provocation” there’s nothing interesting. As it had been said, it’s so easy to use christian symbol, take a look at projects shown in museums, there’s so many Jesus as a source of inspiration. Please try with Allah and i’m sure you will be really provocative !!!

  • I am so tired of this ‘fake’ rebellion fake ‘shock’ . Lets face it, the establishment – the real, in charge elite, don’t care if you mock a cross.
    Challenge for the designers: make a similar auschwitz themed chair …oh, whoops, you can be prosecuted for that in Sweden. Better still one that offends muslims. The designers know they can mock Christians with little or no consequence, and in fact, get some free publicity and some useful idiots defending ‘free expression’. But if the designers would really mock what is really ‘sacred’ to our elite, their defenders of free expression would be scarce indeed.
    What is it, close to 100 years since “fountain’ and you’re still trying to shock the bourgeoisie? Grow up.
