ShenZhen Special #1
ShenZhen Special is the term I use for things that I see out there that rip off the original. ShenZhen being that booming city across the border where you can get fake anything. From Nike Pigeon Dunks to some blingass Rolexes, LV basketballs and toilet paper holders, you name it they got it. Above is the famous Wiggle chair by one of my favorite architects Frank Gehry. Designed in 1969 and now produced by the company Vittra, it is made entirely of cardboard. It is not only beautiful but comfortable as well. Many say the surface of the cardboard edges feel like suede.
This is it’s ShenZhen special.
