I just wonder... 
Is there someone who has never played Tetris?
Have you ever ask yourself where this game came from, who invented it and some others features?
..well... here I will tell you few things about this great game.

Tetris (Russian: Те́трис) is a puzzle video game originally designed and programmed by Alexey Pajitnov.

He developed the popular game Tetris while working for the Computing Center of the Soviet Academy of Sciences, a Soviet government-founded R&D center. 

It was released on June 6, 1984.

Alexey Leonidovich Pajitnov is a computer-engineer from Russia now living in the United States.

He derived its name from the Greek numerical prefix tetra- (all of the game's pieces, known as Tetrominoes, contain four segments) and tennis, Pajitnov's favorite sport.

The seven one-sided tetrominoes in their Tetris Worlds colors:

Here are some of the presentations that this game have had.

As you know, designers are always using their imagination to create "original" things out of the ones that already exist, and Tetris has been not an exception.
The following pictures shows you some of the designs that have been inspired in this game.

This game will be always one of the most importants from 80´s and 90´s.
So, if you haven´t tried it yet, this is a great opportunity to do it! ...

Barcelona Chair

The Barcelona Chair is the iconic piece of the modern furniture movement.

Designed in 1929 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

In 1929 Barcelona was host to the World Arts Fair, and the German government commissioned Mies to design the German Pavilion at Montjuic as part of the exposition.

The Barcelona chair was manufactured in the US and Europe in limited production from the 1930s to the 1950s.

In 1953 van der Rohe ceded his rights and his name on the design to Knoll

Since 1953 Knoll Inc has manufactured the chair. They make the frame in two different steel configurations, chrome and stainless. The chair is almost completely hand-laboured, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's signature is stamped into each chair.

It won the Museum of Modern Art Award in 1977.

In the next video you´ll see all the characteristics that this important chair has. An it also shows you how to recognize an ORIGINAL Barcelona Chair.

Panton Chair


The Panton Chair is one of the most famous icons of Design. 

It was created by Verner Panton, who is considered one of Denmark's most influential 20th-century furniture and interior designers.

I think this chair is really important because it was the very first fully plastic chair made from a single section and it also has won various design prizes world wide.

The Panton Chair is available in different colors like black, red, white, yellow, orange and some others.

One of the first chairs is exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Many artist have been adding their own personality as it shows in the following pictures. 

This design is going to continue being an ICON and I wish I can have one of this pieces in my own house or apartment in a near future.. 

Any of you have one already? Or wish to have one too?...
