Wallpaper Magazines Chair Arch

The striking installation marks the celebration of London’s moment as the creative capital of the world and provides a stunning focal pint in the Victoria and Albert Museum’s gardens. The installation by wallpaper* magazine takes inspiration from the first chair arch constructed in 1877 to celebrate Queen victories visit to high Wycombe.

Wallpaper commissioned leading designer Martino Gamper to re-visit the idea, and create the chair arch for London, using 160 Ercol stacking chairs the arches are self supported and overlapping in a sweeping, organic, playful and elegant design, and a perfect celebration of British design.
