DAILY PIC: This piece is called “Extension Chair,” designed by the young Dutchman Sjoerd Vroonland for the Moooi company. It’s currently in a show called "The Next Wave: Industrial Design in the 21st Century" in Washington D.C., curated by Douglas Burton of Apartment Zero.  I love the way “Extension Chair” indeed “extends” the aesthetic principles of a classic work, and thereby makes it feel entirely contemporary – much more of our time than all the sleek, futuristic designs that, shockingly, still pass as contemporary.
