Alexandra Von Furstenberg is a modern furniture designer and President of AVF, LLC. She attended the Parsons School of Design and Brown University, where she studied costume design and art history. In 1995, Alexandra joined the design team of her mother-in-law, American fashion icon Diane Von Furstenberg. Over her ten-year career at DVF, Von Furstenberg served as Creative Director and later, Director of Image. After relocating to Los Angeles in 2006, Alexandra focused on designing exclusively for the home. A synthesis of art, home furnishings and fashion, her collection consists of signed, limited edition pieces made out of acrylic. The collection is available at Alexandra Von Furstenberg, a West Hollywood boutique she owns and operates.
“My idea for this design was to see how I could transform the original Swan chair into an interpretation of what I do. The Alexandra Von Furstenberg brand is an acrylic based furniture and accessories house. My inspiration was melted taffy, how could I melt plastic on top of the swan chair to look either like draping, melting or molding...et voila a chair in armored plastic. The brand is best know for its neon colors so what better way to support Breast Cancer then by using our pink neon acrylic. On the backrest of the chair is the lip logo in pink sealing it with a kiss ; ) and a white painted leg to stream line the whole look. It was a joy to participate in such a wonderful cause, Thank you."
The chairs will be on view at SUITE New York during the month of October for interested bidders to view in person.
