Commentary The Thing With The Living Clones

Sometimes I want to dip my phone in a glass of white wine, especially if it again around comes under one of my Instagram images, there before a loud qualified opinion and good manners the emoticons and sparks fly. It looks for example like this: XY: Eames Chair overkill. Unfortunately looks exactly look very many. What that gets so upset, you ask yourself now, not about xy, but I that is half so wild, almost cute nice. And right she has Yes! No, really not thats not nice. This is first of all very annoying. Because it is usually happens. The question is: what this strange person us and me with their boldness is produced by digital anonymity telling? What do all these snobbish Naserumpfer tell us at all, who are ever more loudly against the ultimate blockbuster by Hermann Miller and the design duo Eames?

Not much. “you’re living clones” for example. “your stupid follower.” or “you’re as cool as a hot Rosehips tea.” what let them also know us: love to upset about things that are outside their areas of responsibility and don’t even know it most likely why. Guesses could be announced now of course. It is in any case cannot be ruled out that the angry each person would very like to place a plastic chair by Charles and Ray Eames alongside their teak sideboard. Would not the ego together with Credo “mass has little class” (see also: I do what, what you can’t do, a phenomenon of emotionally grinding ownership, who knows everyone, who has an ex-boyfriend or the Ramones on H & M T-shirts saw perish). You could find said seating object under the circumstances even more beautiful – excluded. And we, the Internet, our socialization and the standardisation of tastes are obviously to blame for this, because the same and equal to like, who fishes in similar social milieu, has often a similar taste, psychology. Bingo. And it’s now bad?

I adore the cabaret artist and musician Rainald Grebe still for his honest answer to BrandEins how it feels when you see people everywhere who want to make the same as yourself: “Yes, crap. You want to be the only one Yes. It’s like on Safari. One would now like to have the unique experience of nature, but then eight jeeps are there, and all shooting the same antelopes.” so, it’s no wonder that even the Eames Chair has four legs.

People like XY feel even so sublime, because they worship not Eames, but Arne Jacobsen, IKEA, Thonet and Eiermann, because they “vintage” shopping rather than buy catalogue merchandise. They have much more than an arrogant smile for all Eames disciples of this planet anyway not left, the loss of individuality it seems finally as good as sealed with the resurrection of an organically shaped piece of design history. Anyway, laugh it when looking at ver-Eamster apartments only derogatory in their anti-hipster their sleeves and forgotten once more that they would do very well to stop serenity in her life. Especially the own peace of mind for your sake. Agape neighbors are not free tend to be unpopular.

What has resulted in that I like to gently pat the head these people and give them okay “be fine” would whisper in his ear. I would like to say them, that they really and truly can delete friends of friends from their reading list, all the AD-enabled apartments should ensure actually heated tempers. It can be Yes not healthy to stick again and again with a head in front of the screen. I would like to tell them that a life without Instagram is worth living, that a day without blog posts is not a lost day. The risk tomorrow again to stumble, is simply too large a this unbearable arm chair.
Is correct that an Eames plastic chair since its revival more is certainly not an expression at the latest avant-garde or design elitism. Who decides nevertheless to, should with this amazingly beautiful, universal Chair, how many other designs need about 60 years, until he pave the way by a contemporary ambitious piece about a period of great success, the descent into the old-fashioned, until a revival as inviolable classics had, travelled together to live in, but at least has the certainty that is losing a great design to value not just for him , because also others appreciate him. Thanks, Markus Frenzel. That we all of us like to take your words to heart on.
