Kwabenya Estates, Accra, Ghana

I saw this add on euromaxx dw-tv. It seemed really cool since I find these chairs to be convenient and easy to use in more temporary positions. A plastic chair and a plastic table to go with it, in the back yard of an estate house in Kwabenya Estates, Accra, Ghana.

This picture shows us once again: the beautiful plastic chair is used everywhere. Even in such great hights.

This is from Abetifi –
in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Abetifi is the highest habitable place in Ghana and I was at the right place at right time to take this shot after a marriage ceremony. Abetifi is a very nice place to be with a great weather.

Ethan Zuckermann describes the monobloc plastic chair as a context-free object:

Virtually every object suggests a time and place. The Monobloc is one of the few objects I can think of that is free of any specific context. Seeing a white plastic chair in a photograph offers you no clues about where or when you are.


While I never had that same impression (well, unless if you take a picture of an chair in a studio environment), with the pictures I gathered for plastikstuhl.de during the last seven years, I am above to check if this is true or not.
