Recently on Dezeen we've featured a chair that's a cross between traditional alpine furniture and Danish modernism, and a pine and aluminium chair designed by Konstantin Grcic for the new Parrish Art Museum in New York by Herzog & de Meuron.

We also recently published an update on the classic bentwood bistro chair by Thonet and a chair inspired by the use of forced perspective in Renaissance paintings.

    Isn’t this a rather obvious copy?

    • kolobok

      Well, the proportions are different so it’s like Nike and Nyke.

      • andy

        I’ll stick to PLC, I mean Nike kolobok ;)

  • Rufus

    What? The proportions are different, by a couple of millimetres. Come on Kolobok this is an exact copy with no originality. If you’re going to design something, use your creativity.

    It looks typically Scandinavian.

      Looking at the details this is far too close to PearsonLloyd’s design – look at the rear rails, the intersection with the back rest, even the colours and use of materials – and the upholstery options – either a lack of integrity, lack of market research or plain stupidity.

    I guess that particular type of chair has been around for some time. Look at Danish designer B√łrge Mogensens Shell chair ca. 1950: http://vamptvintagedesign.com/detailimage.php/tab

    Pretty close.

  • Acid

    More lookey likey – lacking integrity?

  • JDH

    How is this different than Borge Mogensen's dining chair, circa 1950?

    And another one: Butterfly Chair by Autoban http://autoban212.com/#/products/chair
    At least they always choose a different name for the same chair! Doesn't that count for originality?

  • peter

    What (or who) decides if something is a copy or not?

    • andrew

      It’s interesting, slap’s other designs aren’t really inspiring, not well rounded. Look at the bigger picture.

  • andrew

    I prefer the original PLC by PearsonLloyd and will continue to specify. Better proportions, good design, original, pushing construction of the normality of timber chairs.

    The bunny chair, says it all in it’s title, just another bunny.

    For you above who are posting links of vintage chairs (vintage chair links above are different on rear rail), maybe check this link out below, and then evaluate why the original PLC has won a guildmark. http://www.furnituremkrs.co.uk/GuildMarkDetail.as

    Unoriginal but I think it’s fractionally nicer than the other links here.

    Everybody does it, to a lesser or greater extent. Even established famous designers e.g. http://www.themodernsybarite.com/2012/01/arne-jac… – Arne Jacobsen Drop Chair http://houseandhome.com/design/karim-rashids-otta… – Karim Rashid Ottawa Chair. Was Rashid copying or “inspired by” the Drop chair?
