as part of prague designblok 09, vitra presented a special design exhibition on the premises of the prague zoo. inside the lemur pavilion, daniel pirsc authored the installation of the ronan and erwan bouroullec’s ‘vegetal chairs’ and ‘algues room dividers’ in the form of a tree. the furniture was intertwined with the actual flora and fauna of the pavilion, allowing the lemurs to interact with the piece.

  • the installation wasn’t actually designed by the bouroullec brothers.
    it was conceived by czech designer daniel prisc.

  • I don’t know why everybody is so negatively impressed.
    I like it.
    Nice installation.
    Keep up with this kind of things, Bouroullecs!

  • Wow, can’t wait to see little monkey eating away on the ‘algae’! How stupid. I believe this is 2009 correct? Threfore the 70’s and the reverence for plastics should be over right about now don’t you guys think?

  • comme dit Maurice bon designer mais vraiment mauvais artistes, l’installation est est une verrue dans ce zoo.

    sylvain
  • good designers, bad artists

  • Horrible expensive plastic chairs in a riduculous construction for depressed animals ?

    mil
  • The brothers surely didn’t do this ?

    It looks like they literally threw the chairs into the tree from an overpassing aircraft.

  • ouch.. that’s not what you do with the bouroullecs work. simply put, it just doesn’t look nice. also, the algues don’t gel with the vegetals. get me in there ill straighten it up 🙂
