Two hand decorated dining room chairs, model 108 from Finn Juhl will be sold for the benefit of cooperative farming in Thailand.
For the exhibition SLOWFASHIONhouse live that takes place 21-30 April at Design Gallery Odengatan in Stockholm, the Stockholm based Danish designer and founder of SLOWFASHIONhouse Rigetta Klint has decorated two Finn Juhl dining room chairs 108 from 1946. The Chairs are back in production and managed by onecollection as an exclusive producer of the Finn Juhl furnitures. The dining chair was re-launched at the furniture fair in Stockholm in February as part of One black collection.
These unique chairs will be auctioned off at www.SLOWFASHIONhouse.com. Bidding begins May 1 and ends June 1st.
The Chairs are sold as a pair and the sales price will go to set up a farming cooperative in the small town Bannongplalai in north-eastern Thailand.
Jewellery designer Lina Falkesgaard, who also participates at the exhibition in Stockholm, is the initiator of the project in Thailand. During the latest years, Lina Falkesgaard has built a workshop and established education for a number of young people in Thailand. Lina Falkesgaard is deeply committed to improving the living conditions of the 250 inhabitants in the city. The amount that comes in from the sale of the one off chairs will be doubled by Lina Falkesgaard as a matching grant.
We are pleased to cooperate person to person and through our creative work to support a city that needs help. The basic idea of SLOWFASHIONhouse is exactly the advantage of cooperation. In the virtual department store we offer long lasting products that go hand in hand with today's opposition to the senseless exhaustion, says Rigetta Klint.
The list price for one chair without decoration is 448 €.
