The colour pink has a certain appeal. While it can be playful and effervescent, it can also convey soothing comfort. Similarly, Arne Jacobsen’s Swan chair beckons sitters with its languorous lines and keeps them seated with its oddly perfect proportions and addictive swivel that allows for excellent room surveillance, especially during cocktail parties. Fittingly,Suite New York has brought the two together with its Pink Swan Project, which will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
The chairs will be available for purchase on the online auction site Charitybuzz. The equally iconic Fritz Hansen will provide the blank canvases for the participating designers, and Champagne Billecart-Salmon will offer bubbly refreshment (hopefully rosé) for the celebratory events.
