(credit: Bally via Openers) Limited edition Bally Meets Herman Miller Eames Chair | US$auction | www.openers.com
chair is the last thing you would have expected from designer shoes maker Bally but that’s exactly what it has. however, Bally isn’t alone in the creation of this chair. marking its 160th anniversary, it has teamed up with award-winning interior furnishing firm Herman Miller to create a limited edition Eames shell chair. the chair’s seat is of plastic and features foldable wooden legs. the otherwise overly minimalist white plastic seat is adorned with an eye-catching red twin stripes, an iconic Bally branding, while a Bally logo metal plate appears at the back of the chair.
only sixteen of these fine examples will be made and put up for auction via Openers on the August 10, 2011. if you are interested in getting one of these (or all of them, if you have huge pockets), then be sure to check out Openers’ website [JP] for more details. in the mean time, do check out a few more images of this gorgeous chair after the break.
