Currently exhibiting at Vienna’s Walking Chair Gallery is an exciting exhibition by urbanist John Briscella.

Briscella has taken a traditional Louis XIV Chair and transposed the street layout of Paris.  In doing this, Briscella says, he is giving meaning to the relationship between pattern and product, creating stories of their union: “Louis XIV’s great disappearing act in Paris”, or “Real ghosts put a bed sheet over them to scare people, Louis XIV uses a map of Paris”.

The gallery is also selling these natty little notebooks, with featuring 127 different feint-ruled city grids for your sketching pleasure. As you read this, one is on its way to Australia.

Thanks to MoCoLoco for the tip.
