I’m not one to normally get caught watching a contemporary “romantic comedy” let alone one that stars Ryan Reynolds. To be honest I feel like he, Ryan Gosling and Dane Cook circa 2005-2006 all play “that (nonthreatening, sarcastic, cocky, misunderstood, good hearted, smart ass, semi douche) guy”. So that usually means if “that guy” is in the movie, I’m not watching it. (Hey, John Krasinski aka Jim from the Office I’m talking to you too! ) OK, With my diatribe out of the way, on to the point.
The movie Definitely, Maybe with Ryan Reynolds briefly shows the Bruce Hannah and Andrew Morrisson’s Model 2011, Knoll Chair. Designed for Knoll in 1971 and produced from 1972- 1977, it’s pleasantly refreshing to see, since it wasn’t produced for very long. Home 114 in New York has a polished aluminum pair for $6800 and there’s a white pair on Ebay for $3250… The plus side to the Ebay one is, there’s an option to make an offer… Bargain!
With it’s clean lines and the Barcelona Chair being EVERYWHERE, I think it’s only a matter of time before DWR or Hive get these back into production…
Sometimes when I rewatch a movie that I know I watched A LOT of when I was younger I’m amazed that A: I was allowed to watch it and B: think there is NO way a movie like this could be made today… That being said THE TOY with Richard Pryor and Jackie Gleason is probably being reworked. It might be a funny movie with Larry David in the Pryor Role and Meryl Streep role…
The toy room has 2 great pieces. Eero Arnio’s Pastil chair in yellow can still be bought new for $1792 at Hive Modern or you can go vintage for $1200 at 20cDesign.com in black or $2400 at Home114 in white.
The Joe by Gionatan De Pas, Danato D’Urbino and Paolo Lomazzi. Named after the legendary New York Yankees center fielder Joe DiMaggio. The closest I could get to this was a vintage denim one in Paris for $5197. A fun option for $1000 is the plastic one at Nova68 or Hive Modern.
So again, If anyone knows David or Meryl tell them to think about this remake since Hollywood isn’t doing any NEW stories…. I’d go see this remake.
