Kjell Grant - ORANGE
Kjell Grant was a very special guest at the recent floor talk for the ORANGE exhibition at the Design Gallery. The Aloha chair designed in 1971 has drawn a lot of interest from visitors. The chair is returning to commercial production having been designed originally for a single hotel fit out. Kjell also has the Montreal chair in the digital presentation for ORANGE in the section related to EXPO 67 alongside the orange covered Talking Chairs by Grant Featherston and the distinctive orange hostess uniforms.
