Even Patricia Urquiola’s outdoor chair for B&B Italia is reminiscent of the peacock chair’s form. I guess it is safe to say that the popular 70s furniture is making a comeback.
I don’t know who originally designed this chair. I can’t find any information about it. I know, however, that many of these chairs were made in Cebu using buri. I confirmed it with Vito Selma. I was glad that I asked him because he also confirmed that their furniture company, Stonesets, is actually producing them again, using the same weavers who used to make them in Cebu around 35-40 years ago!
Above is Stonesets’s peacock chair which we saw in Kish late last month.
Speaking of ‘made in the philippines’, Manila FAME will be opening this Sunday, October 16, and will run until October 19 at the SMX Convention Center. The great thing about this year’s show is that it combines three exhibitions–Manila Now, CebuNext, and Bijoux Cebu (eco fashion accessories)–in one big event!
