Co-Chair Astrology — May 2023
My sun is in Ikea and my moon is in Vitra ♡
Astrology’s a funny thing, right? Well, you know what’s also funny (to us 😛)? Furniture. Especially the random, often-absurd pieces we come across while scouring the internet for our next favorite chair.
Launching the zine, we obviously had to do a little astrology round-up: here are some of the lovely, strange, and frequently liminal pieces that remind us of some people we know. Enjoy 😘
This brick armchair screams comfort, doesn't it? It's as stoic and unyielding as the Capricorn who is definitely and absolutely always right(?). Goes well with a too-full agenda.
Marcel Caram's several-stories-high chair is as quirky and offbeat as an Aquarius on a good day. Truly, who wouldn't want a chair that requires a ladder to reach, a reminder of our ethereal Aquarius and their perpetual head-in-the-clouds energy.
This sofa by Carla Tolomeo Vigorelli seems ready to give you a full-on hug or swallow you whole, depending on the day. It's just as you'd expect - an emotional rollercoaster you just suddenly realized you were on, much like our sensitive Pisces.
This glass-top coffee table is just about as subtle as an Aries with a point to prove. It'll certainly be the conversation starter, much like the passionate and assertive Aries (who loves playing games).
Fernando Mastrangelo's boulder-like sofa perfectly embodies the immovable spirit of a Taurus. It's as comfortable as sitting on a...well, rock. But hey, it's reliable, stable and guaranteed not to move - just like our Taurus.
This split set of drawers by Straight Line Designs is as direct as a Gemini's decisions. Perfect for those who can't quite make up their mind, it's an all-too-literal stand-in for the Gemini's dual nature and constant state of flux.
You've got to admire a chair that's as literal as Cancer's emotional transparency. Just like our sweet and feel-y Cancer friends, this chair is ready to hop back into its shell at the first sign of conflict.
This portrait-sitting chair practically screams "Look at me!" It's perfect for those who thrive on the attention of adoring fans and enjoy being the life of the party, much like our charismatic Leo.
Porky Hefer's hanging basket chair is the perfect hideaway for the meticulous and sometimes quite critical Virgo. It's the ideal spot for nitpicking every detail while comfortably removed from the mess of reality.
Deger Cengiz's "Attitude Chair" is just about as decisive as a Libra trying to choose between two nearly identical items. Balanced on one point, it's a quite a metaphor for the Libra’s never-ending search for balance.
This spiked table lamp is as warm and cuddly as a Scorpio's exterior. Just like the mysterious and often misunderstood Scorpio, it's a piece that's intriguing but approachable...with caution :)
The Sagittarius' blunt honesty couldn't be better represented than by this Martin Mostböck chair with an axe to grind. It's just as subtle as a Sagittarius telling you your outfit doesn't look good. But hey, at least you'll always know where you
