Show Me Something New

Today I found two CD's from Isaloni 2007 that contain furniture images. The designs were, at the time, completely new...but to me, they were not too impressive re-dos. Who was it that said everything that could be invented had already been invented? Charles H. Duell, Commissioner of the U.S. Office of Patents in 1899. I know, it's always easy to be the critic, but see for yourself the similarities between these designs by Sintesi and the classic furniture pieces.

The original Eames lounge chair

The Sinesti version, called Hipster

The original Club Chair S 35 chair by Breuer
And the Wassily Chair, by Breuer

The Sinesti version, Iara

P.S. I definitely DON'T believe that everything has already been invented! Otherwise what's the fun of being a designer?
