Here’s a quick one. After writing a previous post on Pedro Almodóvar, I decided I needed to see all his films. My latest one is Talk to Her (Hable con ella), and just like the others before it I was intrigued, amazed, shocked and delighted. His story telling, the look of the film and his actors are all superb. So, it was truly an added bonus to see another famous chair in this movie.
This chair was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956 for the Herman Miller furniture company.
And now that I’ve noticed this chair once, I must notice it somewhere at least once a week. It’s in movies, on TV, in print advertisements. It even appeared in a Cole Haan ad on the side bar of my email.
You might also notice a famous table in the scene from Talk to Her. It is Eileen Gray’s chromed steel side table from 1927. Built for the E 1027 house in the South of France, these tables were likely inspired by the chromed tubular steel furniture of the Bauhaus.
