The Strataca Salt Museum is home to the Underground Vaults & Storage Gallery which houses the original film negatives for many of Hollywood's greatest movies. Another portion of the storage gallery houses many original film props and costumes including the original suit for Agent Smith in The Matrix

The image below shows Hugo Weaving aka Agent Smith sitting in an original Eames side chair that I have talked about before.

Keanu Reeves who plays the protagonist Neo in The Matrix series can be seen sitting in a modern version of the Barcelona Lounge Chair by famed German architect and designer Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

Meis designed the Barcelona Chair as part of the bigger Barcelona (German) Pavilion project for the Barcelona International Exposition of 1929

You mean a Sacco?

by unoudid @, Somewhere over the rainbow, Wednesday, February 15, 2017, 20:07 (1747 days ago) @ Funkmon

The Sacco (aka bean bag chair) was designed by Piero Gatti, Cesare Paolini and Franco Teodoro, three designers who had come to the Italian company Zanotta with the idea of creating furniture by deconstructing its form.

They noticed that workers would sit on bags of styrofoam while taking their breaks or smoking. After observing this, they came up with the idea of putting a nice shell around the loose bag of foam/pellets to create this new piece of furniture.

Designed: 1968
Materials: Polystyrene Pellets, Leather/Synthetic Leather/Fabric

The Sacco is a design that is in numerous museums around the world including the MOMA Design Collection

Fun Fact

by unoudid @, Somewhere over the rainbow, Wednesday, February 15, 2017, 20:49 (1747 days ago) @ unoudid

Bean Bag chairs are unintentionally one of the deadliest pieces of furniture. The filling can pose an extreme choking and suffocation hazard. Such is the price of living in style

A very safe mine as well. Few injuries.

Assuming no evil coverups.

If Portal 2 and Resident Evil 7 have taught me anything, it's that salt mines are great for nefarious purposes...

Ostensibly where Portal 2 takes place if I recall correctly.

Salt mines are a weird concept to me

I've been to salt farms, though, and they made a lot of sense.
