sitting on a rainbow.
Working with vintage furniture sometimes resembles a treasure hunt – and as you may know, you rarely find one. But that’s actually the case here: this „Rainbow Chair“, designed in 1999 by Andreas Thaler, exists only in form of three prototypes, one each in black, white and red plus a few examples produced on customer demand. One of them decorated an MTV backdrop for years. And after a journey through time and space this twenty-year-old red exemplar reemerged. Made of coated styrofoam with a strong patina, the coating peels off and crumbles – it was just a prototype, never intended for real usage.
Andreas Thaler was born in Linz, Austria. Working at the border between art and design his pieces are distinguished by geometric reduction and a unique language of shapes. Objects of laser-cut metal, coated polyurethane or crystal, from eye-glasses through seating furniture to room instalments – to be found at European museums, art- and design hotels, MTV studios and headquarters of famous concerns.

Advisory: This prototype is NOT intended for usage. It is an very rare object of art, suitable for collectors.
