Some years ago I visited The Alhambra Theatre in New York to experience the feel of the 1920s. Legendary performers like Bessie Smith and Billy Holiday helped create the success of the venue. The combination of the architecture with the original furniture was fascinating and somehow very inspiring for me. In 2011 Jan te Linteloo asked me to make a modern armchair with the feel of the 20's. Alhambra was born mixing 'the old and the new', with a twist.
