The Unbearable Lightness of Inflatable Furniture

If every second of our lives recurs an infinite number of times, we are nailed to eternity as Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross. It is a terrifying prospect. In the world of eternal return the weight of unbearable responsibility lies heavy on every move we make. ~ Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

History can be cruel. I’m pretty sure this is a generalism with which Kundera would agree; maybe the statement could be refined to read “those people so concerned with making history can be cruel”, or something like that. In any case: people who take themselves very seriously. And who takes themselves more seriously – who is more concerned with making history – than fashion designers? Among them the designers of furniture. In which case Milan Kundera is a victim of fashion, as is so ably demonstrated in this video. Une plaisanterie, indeed.
