Here's as good a place as any. Sculptor Alessandro Mendini's work is showing here in Seoul. He has a series of these chairs that bear an undeniable resemblance to the centerpiece of Saltimbanco. Couldn't find any connection through googling. Think the show's prop could have been one of his creations?

I wonder if they literally painted over one of his? The design is pretty much identical...

The probably painted the fabrics and re finished it. I believe the chair is a plastic or leather type.
