How to Steal a Chair
Greece / USA
In Greece, a 72-year-old collector is realizing that he’s become a ghost. Public interest in resurrecting his fabled design museum has dried up and maintaining his collection amidst the crisis is untenable. He must sell, but he would rather go down with his collection, than see it sold off bit by bit. Meanwhile, he undertakes to produce a retrospective of his own design work in the building of his “lost” museum.
An aging Greek designer is buried under the weight of his lost dream: a design museum. He is also buried under the weight of his enormous design collection, once the core of his museum and now defunct and too costly to maintain.
