Are you a chair spotter?

If you know your Jacobsen from your Panton, you might get a kick out of this new iPhone app which turns recognising classic furniture into a game.

 

If you know your Jacobsen from your Panton, you might get a kick out of this new iPhone app which turns recognising classic furniture into a game.

Design Icon: Chairs works by showing silhouettes of design icons and then asking the user for their name, designer or date. It was developed by Mark Stevens from Fail Forwards in Copenhagen and costs 59p from the App Store (see more details here).

“Whether you’re a design aficionado, student, or want to score a bargain at a bric-a-brac market, the Design Icon series gets you up to speed on the design classics,” Stevens says. “The world’s most iconic chairs are featured. The majority are classics of the 20th Century, though a few famous 19th and 21st century pieces are included. Currently there are more than 100 chairs featured.”

A font version of the app is promised soon.
