There's a building in the Bay Area that has furniture affixed to the outside wall. Colorful chairs, some lamps, a chaise lounge, a TV. The chair legs are perpendicular to the wall, so it looks like the furniture is defying gravity. The building looks like your average apartment residence, with white paint and a fire escape and some mural art below. Is this public art or just a crazy landlord? Where is it? How long has it been around?

Hello. It's called "Defenestration." It's at 6th & Howard Street. It's been around since 1997. It's an art project. See: Defenestration.org: Press Release http://www.defenestration.org/press.html CNN: "Furniture gallery in the sky" http://www.cnn.com/US/9703/17/fringe/flying.furniture/index.html Metaphorm.org: Denefestration http://www.metaphorm.org/pages/portfolio/defenestration/defen.html There's also a little write-up about it on virtualtourist.com http://www.virtualtourist.com/vt/b870f/6/2db/ Another photo: http://p.vtourist.com/984795.jpg ----------- search strategy: "san francisco" "hanging furniture" "san francisco" "furniture hanging" "defenstration" "howard st" I hope this helps.
