Fair & co has collaborated with the ‘Art Room’ and invited Artists, designers & architects to transform the classic Ernest Race BA2 chair – creating variations for an installation cascading from the atrium ceiling in Selfridges.
In typical Rolf Sachs fashion, ‘red run’ takes two familiar objects and injects then with warmth, humour and energy. Reminiscent of childhood, the piece merges the iconic Ernest Race BA2 chair with a sledge to create a witty, surreal and truly memorable object.
Rolf Sachs quote:
“This was a great opportunity for me to create a piece that conjured up the spirit of childhood; one of excitement, fun and, of course, humour.”

During set up of our exhibition in the beautiful spaces of the Nymphenburg Porzellan Manufaktur, we were lucky to get a tour through the extensive workshops.
Nymphenburg is historically the porcelain manufactory of the Bavarian crown. Since its founding in 1747 porcelain has been produced here in the same way. Even today all mechanical equipment is powered by the water which runs from the estate’s stream. All pieces are completely made by hand which is a fascinating process to watch. We very much enjoyed our visit!
