  • Josef Hoffmann Hoffmann Armchair
    dwr.com
    Josef Hoffmann Hoffmann Armchair
    Josef Hoffmann is well known for the simple, restrained, yet visually interesting dining chairs – several intended for cafés – that he designed early in the 20th century. The influence of the Arts and Crafts movement can be seen in his work, but Hoffmann also embraced the industrial age. Rather than rejecting traditional decoration, he succeeded in making it serve structural principles, which he believed should determine the forms of buildings, interiors and objects. Whether admiring one of his chairs or the Sanatorium Purkersdorf he designed in 1903, you can see Hoffmann’s emphasis on straight, unadorned lines, characteristics that are in keeping with the style of the Viennese Secession. The Hoffmann Armchair (1925), designed in collaboration with Josef Frank, is made at the bentwood factory founded by Michael Thonet in 1861. Made in the Czech Republic.

    Jaime Hayon Ro Lounge Chair
    Spanish designer Jaime Hayon immersed himself as a teenager in both skateboard culture and graffiti art, which lie at the core of the bold and whimsical forms that he creates today. In 1997, after studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris, he joined Fabrica, a research center in Treviso, Italy, where he soon became the head of design. Hayon struck out on his own in 2003, first devising collections of ceramics and furniture, then delving into interior design. His work is featured in several museums and has received accolades from the likes of Time and Wallpaper magazines. Hayon designed his Ro Lounge Chair (2013) to offer relief from frenetic everyday life. “My goal was to create a slim and elegant chair that encourages reflection and comfort,” he explains. Appropriately named – ro is Danish for “tranquility” – this sculptural chair beckons you to relax, offering chair-and-a-half proportions beautifully suited to changing positions, reading a newspaper or having your dog sitting next to you as you unwind. Upholstered with a tufted back and flared outer shell, it’s marked by subtle textural contrast and flowing organic lines. This is the authentic Ro Lounge Chair produced by Republic of Fritz Hansen. Made in Poland.
  • Eoos Crosshatch Chair

    Eoos Crosshatch Chair
    Eoos is a studio based in Vienna that was founded in 1995 by designers Martin Bergmann, Gernot Bohmann and Harald Gründl. The name is a playful variant of Eous, one of the four chariot horses of sun god Helios, according to Greek mythology. It was the first that resonated with the trio after they spotted it in a copy of Ovid’s Metamorphoses that just so happened to be lying around their office, chosen in part for the way a horse’s erratic jaunts evoke a designer’s irregular everyday forays into the conceptual. Eoos has won more than 70 international awards, including the Compasso d’Oro. Its Crosshatch Chair (2014) balances a visually light aesthetic with sturdy construction, consisting of parachute cord precisely wrapped around a solid wooden frame and seat bottom. The chair imparts the feeling of being suspended in a cozy nest, with a slightly canted back for ample comfort and support. Crosshatch works well in both living areas and office spaces. Made in U.S.A.

  • Alexander Begge Casalino Chair

    Alexander Begge Casalino Chair
    Alexander Begge, born in 1941, designed only one collection before abandoning his career in design. “Not a single drawing I made,” he recounts while describing the process that led to his Casalino Chair (1971). “I had this image of a wisp of fog, and elaborated on that. It brought so much joy, I was in a glow.” In the year it was designed, the Casalino Chair won the Good Industrial Form award at the Hanover Fair in Germany. Popular in the ’70s but forgotten in the ’80s, Casalino has returned. After deciding to reintroduce it, the company Casala searched for the original molds and found them at a depot in Antalya, Turkey. Casalino was brought back into production in 2007 and once again made available in the U.S. by DWR in early 2013. This elegant yet robust cantilevered chair features a flowing shape with no sharp corners. Lightweight, stackable and easy to clean, Casalino works well in a variety of indoor spaces. It’s constructed of impact-resistant polypropylene with a padded fabric seat for durability and comfort. Made in Germany.
  • Eero Saarinen Saarinen Executive Armchair with Metal Legs - Leather

    Eero Saarinen Saarinen Executive Armchair with Metal Legs - Leather
    The design of Eero Saarinen's Executive Armchair (1950) began more than a decade earlier, when he and Charles Eames submitted several designs to the Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition at the MoMA. The pair, who'd been friends and collaborators since meeting at Cranbrook Academy of Art, won first prize. These fluid, sculptural shapes influenced the future work of both men; for Saarinen, most notably in his Womb, Tulip and Executive chairs. The Executive was originally made of fiberglass but was later updated in polyurethane to take advantage of the technical advances in plastics. The feel of this classic seat, however, remains unchanged. The molded shell flexes slightly with the sitter and the contoured plywood seat supported by metal or wood legs. Unlike Saarinen's furniture, which was consistently sculptural in form, these fluid lines didn't appear in his architecture until the 1950s. When looking at the dome-shaped glass wall of the Kresge Auditorium at MIT, it's not a big leap to see the same shape in the back of his Executive Chair. This chair is Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certified¿ for its use of low-emitting products. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A.

    Michael Thonet Era Armchair with Upholstered Seat
    Defined by its dependable bentwood construction and simple organic form, the graceful, lightweight and surprisingly strong Era Collection (1859) has been in continuous production for more than 150 years. By making the chair back and rear legs from a single piece of curved wood, designer Michael Thonet, who perfected the bentwood process for chair-making, eliminated the need for expensive and time-consuming hand-carved joints. Swiss architect Le Corbusier used the Era Chair in his buildings, stating, “This chair, whose millions of representatives are used on the Continent and in the two Americas, possesses nobility.” Other fans of this iconic form included Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, both of whom featured this chair in their paintings. As with any natural material, slight variations in the texture and color of the wood are to be expected and are not defects. Made in the Czech Republic at a factory that’s been making chairs for more than a century.

Originally introduced at the Danish Museum of Art and Design in 1957, it was displayed later that year in Milan, where it took both the Grand Prix award and name. Jacobsen applied his expert understanding of the human form and wood molding techniques to create this lightweight, durable chair, still ideal for a wide range of commercial and residential applications. Its molded plywood seat is shaped to comfortably support the body. Choose from several finishes, all of which allow the wood grain to show through.

    Niels Diffrient's Freedom Chair (1999) was a breakthrough in ergonomic task seating. With a height-adjustable headrest, the headrest version offers customized support for the head, allowing for proper eye-level positioning when working long hours at a computer station. The Freedom Chair is designed to fit almost all body types. The seat depth is adjustable to properly support the seat and thighs, while the adjustable back support helps keep the lumbar region of the body in line. Often, ergonomic chairs are likely to be improperly positioned, resulting in the creation of more problems than they solve. The Freedom Chair is simpler than other chairs, eliminating many manual adjustments and creating instead a system of internal mechanisms that respond to the user's needs. A unique counterbalancing tilt mechanism self-adjusts according to the user's weight and movement, thus eliminating the need for manual fixes. In addition, the chair and seatback can be easily raised or lowered, and the seat itself moves forward or back. Any adjustments can be easily made while the user is seated for accurate positioning. Because of a natural lift-and-release action, the armrests are effortlessly repositioned in tandem depending on the task at hand. The seat cushion provides excellent shock absorption and weight distribution for unmatched comfort. Made in U.S.A. For big shots who leave small footprints, Freedom is 62% recycled, 90% recyclable and 100% comfortable.

    “Furniture that is too obviously designed is very interesting,” said designer Milo Baughman, “but too often belongs only in museums.” A firm believer that good design can have a positive influence in our lives, Baughman knew how to design sophisticated, sexy chairs – even when it came to a Recliner (1966). Recognized as one of the originators of the California modern movement, Baughman began his career as a custom furniture designer and in 1953 he joined forces with Thayer Coggin, the founder of the North Carolina company that is still the exclusive manufacturer of Baughman’s work. For five decades, Baughman designed clean, sophisticated and easy-to-live-with furniture, and we worked closely with Thayer Coggin to bring this Recliner back into production. Baughman’s work was included in “High Styles: Twentieth Century American Design,” at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1985. In 1987, he was inducted into the Furniture Design Hall of Fame.

    “A relaxed seating position that can change is a very nice thing to think about,” says Jeffrey Bernett. “And bringing the best thinking you can to a problem is what modernism is all about.” When we challenged Bernett and Nicholas Dodziuk to create a recliner that didn’t look like a recliner, they took us on willingly. Sleek and streamlined, the satisfying Flight Recliner (2005) has a compact footprint, and its patented conversion mechanism takes only a slight, seated push to activate. Upright, the Flight functions as a comfortable, streamlined club chair, and it opens in three stages from feet up to full recline. A stainless steel sleigh base provides stable footing. Lifetime warranty on frame. Made in U.S.A.

    Piero Lissoni Audrey Armchair, Set of 2
    The prolific architect and designer Piero Lissoni is based in Milan and operates a satellite office in New York. After opening his studio in 1986, he worked on his first project for Boffi, and his client list quickly grew to include Alessi, Artemide and Kartell. He later delved into architecture, building a portfolio that includes hotels, corporate headquarters and private homes around the world. From structures to furniture to accessories, Lissoni works magic with simple, clean lines. He strives to create buildings and interior furnishings “that are clean and more or less silent.” His latest chair was named after Audrey Hepburn because, like the actress, it has a slim and elegant silhouette. It took him five years to design the Audrey Chair (2011), and in the process he helped Kartell develop a new method of robotic production. “For me, design means industrial,” says Lissoni, “but I’m also connected with human beings.” Built to withstand the elements, Audrey’s die-cast aluminum two-part frame is made without welds. The rattan-like seat and back are made from durable plastic with an open-weave structure that helps keep you comfortable by permitting air circulation. This sleek streamlined chair can go anywhere, from indoors to out, residential to commercial. Made in Italy.

    Charles and Ray Eames Eames® Molded Fiberglass Stacking Side Chair (DFSS)
    Charles and Ray Eames believed “design is a method of action,” and they continually updated their work as newbecame available. “The chair that Charles and Ray were designing,” explains grandson Eames Demetrios, “is the chair that’s made tomorrow.” The duo originally designed their molded chair in metal and entered it as a prototype in MoMA’s 1948 International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design, then refashioned it in light yet strong fiberglass just two years later. In the 1980s, after determining fiberglass production was detrimental to the environment, Herman Miller ceased production to explore more sustainable options, eventually choosing recyclable polypropylene. The company never quite forgot about fiberglass, however, and it recently began researching greener production methods. The Eames Molded Fiberglass Chair (1950) is the end result, constructed using a cleaner process but true to the original with its beloved variegated surface. This reintroduced version comes in a range of reformulated semi-gloss color pigments that faithfully reproduce the vintage ones. Its deep seat pocket and waterfall edge keep you comfortable by reducing pressure on the backs of your thighs. The seat back is left unfinished to maintain a slightly rough natural texture for easier gripping with your hands. This is an authentic Eames product by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. DFSS stands for dining-height fiberglass side chair with stacking base (stacks up to 14 high). Made of 99% recyclableand covered by Herman Miller’s take-back program for environmentally sound recycling (should you ever wish to part with this chair).

    Milo Baughman believed that good design is enduring design, and his Goodland Sofa Collection (1968) beautifully demonstrates this idea. Named for the Kansas town where he was born, Goodland reflects the style and ease for which Baughman is known. This collection began as a sofa designed for his own home – his daughter still has the original – which he later expanded upon and launched for retail customers. Goodland pieces are elegantly proportioned with comfortable cushions that have just the right give and thin arms that help maximize the seating area. Made in U.S.A.

    Hans J. Wegner Ladderback Chair
    Hans Wegner’s Ladderback Chair (1966), with its fine joinery and exquisite form, demonstrates the Danish modern innovator’s roots as a cabinetmaker. Shaker-inspired, it features visible joints between the foreleg and the armrest, which help make the chair extremely strong. The hand-woven paper cord seat provides a compelling material contrast to the solid oak frame on this intuitively ergonomic chair that can be used for reading or as a statement piece. A fine example of Wegner’s trademark organic functionalism, the Ladderback combines the warmth of natural wood with the clean, minimal lines of midcentury modernism. One of Wegner’s more than 400 chair creations, it has a timeless shape that hasn’t aged a bit since its conception in 1966. Made in Denmark.

    Arne Jacobsen Swan Chair in Milani Fabric
    Before the Swan Chair (1958), Arne Jacobsen’s architecture and designs were shaped by an assumption of’ natural ways of resisting. In other words, he could make them go only so far in becoming the structures he desired. With new technologies, however, the old rules no longer applied, and he was able to shape fluid curves and single-piece molded shells. The Swan Chair is now made from polyurethane foam, but at the time, Jacobsen used Styropore® to create its continuous shape. Designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, for which Jacobsen was the architect, the chair permitted guests to spin on its swivel base, thus becoming active participants in the busy hotel atmosphere. A single upholsterer hand-sews the fabric onto the frame of Swan. Original design and licensed manufacture by Republic of Fritz Hansen. Made in Poland.

    Niels Diffrient Liberty Task Chair
    In the manufacture of the Liberty Chair (2005) from Humanscale, 54% of theare recycled and 93% are recyclable. In addition to exceeding a variety of environmental standards, Liberty provides next generation seating, meaning perfect support, without external knobs or levers. To create this acclaimed chair, Niels Diffrient developed a tri-panel construction method similar to the way a tailor uses three panels of material to create a custom shirt. This inspired approach turns breathable, form-sensing mesh into body-fitting contours for lumbar support. And because this mesh displaces, rather than stretches, no external devices are necessary for a self-adjusting, customized fit. The innovative Technogel seat is designed to match body contours for long-term comfort. Diffrient recently added a height-adjustable feature to the Technogel-covered arms for increased ergonomic benefits. As users spontaneously change positions throughout the day, a patented counterbalance mechanism automatically provides the right amount of recline tension. Made in U.S.A. For big shots who leave small footprints, Liberty is 54% recycled, 93% recyclable and 100% comfortable.

    The 1188 Chair (1968) was Milo Baughman’s favorite chair and the one with which he chose to furnish the home of business partner and friend Thayer Coggin. Given that the Coggin family could have picked any dining chair in the company’s inventory, the 1188 is something special indeed. Baughman and Coggin met in 1953 and formed a powerful partnership that lasted for five decades. The North Carolina-based company is still the exclusive manufacturer of Baughman furniture to this day. The designer’s work was included in High Styles: Twentieth Century American Design at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1985. Baughman was inducted into the Furniture Design Hall of Fame in 1987. Made in U.S.A. Natural leather is prized for its unique markings. Scars, scrapes and wrinkles are not defects. For the Ivory/Bronze chair, the bronze finish is created by hand and is not uniform. This is intentional, and the marks of the craftsman are left on the chair to add warmth and character to each piece.

    Niels Diffrient Freedom Task Chair - Vicenza Leather
    Niels Diffrient's Freedom Chair (1999) was a breakthrough in ergonomic task seating. Often, ergonomic chairs are likely to be improperly positioned, resulting in the creation of more problems than they solve. The Freedom Chair is simpler than other chairs, eliminating many manual adjustments and creating instead a system of internal mechanisms that respond to the user's needs. A unique counterbalancing tilt mechanism self-adjusts according to the user's weight and movement, thus eliminating the need for manual fixes. Any adjustments can be easily made while the user is seated for accurate positioning. The seat cushion provides excellent shock absorption and weight distribution for unmatched comfort. Spinneybeck Vicenza, a lightly corrected aniline-dyed leather with a breathable protective finish, ensures great durability. The Freedom Chair was awarded the 2002 National Design Award from the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt Museum. Made in U.S.A. For big shots who leave small footprints, Freedom is 62% recycled, 90% recyclable and 100% comfortable.

    Jeffrey Bernett and Nicholas Dodziuk Reid Armchair in Ultrasuede®
    Not just for sitting, the Reid Collection (2007) invites you to watch movies, take a nap or surf on a laptop. Maximizing the enjoyment of downtime is something Jeffrey Bernett is passionate about since he spends a fair bit of his free time doing extreme sports, and he held nothing back when creating Reid with design partner Nicholas Dodziuk. Unlike armchairs where you sit "on top" of the cushion, the experience of Reid is more of a "relaxed sit" thanks to down- and feather-wrapped foam. The back cushion is filled with a soft blend of down and feathers and the wide armrests offer support from elbow to wrist. Made in U.S.A. Discreet legs further the streamlined appearance. Ultrasuede is an innovative micro-fabric that’s pet and kid friendly. In addition to being easy to care for, this modern material has a soft luster, sensuous nap and available in many colors. Reid throw pillows are available, sold separately.

Unlike other exposed-frame collections that force overly upright sitting positions, Raleigh is designed with a carefully canted seatback for a more natural way of situating yourself as you relax and unwind. We chose to work with Jeffrey Bernett and Nicholas Dodziuk on this project because of the importance they place on people – how they move, interact, live and, most of all, sit.

    Hans J. Wegner Easy Chair
    “A chair is to have no backside,” said Hans J. Wegner. “It should be beautiful from all sides and angles.” Sculptural and balanced, his Easy Chair (1950) embodies this maxim, a classic example of the “organic functionalism” for which he is famous. Its natural elegance is exemplified by the paper cord that creates the seat and back – more than 1300 feet of cord is used on each chair. Handwoven by a skilled craftsperson, it’s a process that takes eight to 10 hours. The solid oak frame has fluid lines and exacting joinery, which is expertly assembled and requires no hardware. Relaxed and intuitively ergonomic, the Easy Chair is just that – a seat that can easily blend with modern or traditional interiors, in nearly any room in the house. Made in Denmark.

    Christophe Pillet Sezz Side Chair
    Christophe Pillet brings simplicity, sensuality and a light touch to his internationally renowned work with Lacoste, Catherine Malandrino, Cappellini, Emu, Renault and others. This French designer was trained in Italy, where he assisted Martine Bedin and Michele De Lucchi, and returned to France in 2003 to launch his own agency. His collaboration with Emeco began in 2009 when Pillet was commissioned by Hotel Sezz to do the interiors for its new St. Tropez location. A contemporary interpretation of beauty, timelessness and industrial heritage, the Sezz Side Chair (2010) is sleek and inviting. “The look is very subtle,” says Pillet, “but it holds unbelievable quality. You don’t see the welding, the recycled aluminum, the indestructibleness – they are all real but invisible values, the hidden territory of a luxury product.” The Sezz’s engineering challenge was to build the perfect frame to fit the comfortable rounded seat. The solution is a tube design that’s bent by hand to hold the deep seat basket, and then, like all Emeco seating, is hand welded, ground and hardened. The resulting Sezz Collection, built to last lifetimes, combines Emeco’s traditional heritage with a very modern design. Made in U.S.A.

    Also known as the Time-Life Chair, this iconic piece was originally created for the executive floors of New York City's Time-Life Building in 1960. How those lucky executives were able to get an Eames chair designed just for them began with the Time-Life Chairman, Henry Luce. In 1959, Charles Eames asked Luce for photographs from the Time-Life archive to be used in a slideshow he was creating for the U.S. pavilion at the Moscow World Exhibition. Luce agreed, as long as Eames promised to return the favor one day. In 1960, Eames made good on that promise, and 50 years later, the world is still enjoying the results of that arrangement. This chair is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller®, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. This chair tilts, swivels and has a height-adjustable seat.

    Norman Cherner Cherner® Task Chair
    Although a pioneer in prefab housing, Norman Cherner is best known for his molded plywood seating line he created for – and ultimately sued – the manufacturer, Plycraft. After telling Cherner that his design for what is now known as the Cherner® Chair (1958) had been scrapped, Plycraft's owner continued to produce it, claiming himself as the designer. The Chair's popularity soared when it appeared in Norman Rockwell's 1961 painting "The Artist at Work" on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. Cherner sued, and while Plycraft agreed to pay Cherner royalties, the line was out of production by the early 1970s. In 1999, Cherner's sons formed the Cherner Chair Company to revive the designs and produce them as their father originally intended. The Cherner Task Chair represents an evolution of the Cherner line – his sons produced the chair from their father's initial sketches and prototypes. Lightweight and hardworking, this swiveling, height-adjustable seat has steel arms with walnut armrests. This is an authentic chair by Cherner Chair Company.

    Award-winning industrial designers Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick earned themselves a place in what amounts to the design hall of fame when their Aeron Chair (1994) was added to the permanent collection of MoMA. Aeron is the paradigm of ergonomic seating, conceived to conform not only to different body shapes but also to movement, with multiple adjustment points for a custom fit. The breakthrough Kinemat tilt mechanism lets it move smoothly with the user from forward tilt (when you reach for the phone) to backward recline (while you contemplate what to say). And the Pellicle weave upholstery, another innovation in concept and comfort, evenly distributes weight over the seat and back, and permits air circulation. Durable and sleek, this chair will still look like new long after you retire. Design doesn’t get more civilized. This is the authentic Aeron Chair produced by Herman Miller. Constructed of 66% recycled. Made in U.S.A. Lumbar Support adjusts to fit the natural curve of your mid-back or lumbar region. The sliding support can be flipped over to change seat depth.

    Originally designed for the canteen at Novo Nordisk, an international Danish healthcare company, the future of the Ant Chair (1952) was unclear when the manufacturer expressed concern about its potential. But Arne Jacobsen believed in his product and offered to buy all of the chairs if they didn’t sell. Of course, he never had to make good on that offer as the Ant Chair quickly became an international success. Jacobsen shaped the core of Danish design identity when he accommodated three different bends in one piece of plywood, simply by narrowing the chair back. This chair is ideally suited to the human body. Its seatback has a comfortable "give" and its waterfall seat edge doesn't press into legs. This is the authentic Ant Chair by Republic of Fritz Hansen. Stackable up to six high. Made in Denmark. Choose from nine options of Colored Ash, a durable stain that keeps the wood grain visible, making each chair unique.

    Charles and Ray Eames Eames® Wire Chair with Bikini Pad (DKR.2)
    After refining their molded plastic chairs, Charles and Ray Eames began experimenting with making a chair from welded wire. To succeed, the Eameses had to figure out how to create a design with the strength they needed while keeping manufacturing costs as low as possible. Ultimately, they decided on using lighter-gauge wire doubled over into a rim that sandwiches heavier inner wire to form their Eames Wire Chair (1951), which won them their first American mechanical design patent. Its organic shape and airy silhouette are complemented by what’s commonly referred to as an Eiffel base (because of its trademark shape). This is an authentic Eames product by Herman Miller. Commercial quality. Made in U.S.A. DKR.2 stands for dining height, wire shell, rod base, bikini pad.

    Paulo Mendes da Rocha Paulistano Armchair
    The work of Brazilian designer Paulo Mendes da Rocha reached international recognition when he was awarded the 2006 Pritzker Architecture Prize. That same year, we introduced his Paulistano Armchair (1957) – a classic that had never before been available in the United States. This chair was originally designed for the Paulistano Athletic Club in São Paulo, Brazil. The frame, a continuous 17-foot-long piece of solid steel, is welded in a single spot. This deceptively simple structure is then wrapped in almost an entire hide of leather that will gain depth and luster as it ages. Exceptionally comfortable, the Paulistano flexes slightly, and the sling can be adjusted up or down the frame for upright or relaxed sitting positions. The stainless steel frame is hand-machine polished and may exhibit markings consistent with hand craftsmanship. The frame in phosphatized carbon steel, which is the original raw material used in 1957, is slightly rough to the touch and will oxidize slowly with time. This was the intent of the architect, who wants the appearance to evolve, believing the charm of a piece of furniture resides in its non-permanent character. To prevent rust, the phosphatized frame should be treated with WD-40® twice annually. Made in France. Two frames to choose from: polished stainless steel or phosphatized carbon steel.

    Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen Organic Highback Chair
    Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen met at Cranbrook Academy in 1936. Saarinen had just returned home from abroad and was teaching at the Academy, while Eames had accepted a fellowship at the prestigious school. During their time at Cranbrook, they collaborated on many projects, with their efforts culminating in a range of furniture that won first prize at the "Organic Design in Home Furnishings" exhibition held by the MoMA in 1941. Eames and Saarinen designed several versions of the sculptural Organic Highback Chair (1940) for the competition. However, due to manufacturing constraints, the chair never went into serial production. Exhibition curator Eliot F. Noyes wrote of Saarinen and Eames: "Their designs proposed for the first time the use of molded plywood forms for chairs to fit the human body. The jury, in awarding the prizes, decided that these designs were possible to construct, although nobody, including the technical experts present, had any very exact idea of just how it might be done." While molded plastic chairs would hit the market only a few years later, it wasn't until 2006 that Vitra and the Vitra Design Museum first produced the Organic Chair. Made in Germany. With a slightly reclined seating position, the Organic Chair is ideal for reading. The elongated backrest provides neck support.

    Norman Cherner Cherner® Task Chair with Upholstered Seat Pads
    Although a pioneer in prefab housing, Norman Cherner is best known for his molded plywood seating line he created for – and ultimately sued – the manufacturer, Plycraft. After telling Cherner that his design for what is now known as the Cherner® Chair (1958) had been scrapped, Plycraft's owner continued to produce it, claiming himself as the designer. The Chair's popularity soared when it appeared in Norman Rockwell's 1961 painting "The Artist at Work" on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. Cherner sued, and while Plycraft agreed to pay Cherner royalties, the line was out of production by the early 1970s. In 1999, Cherner's sons formed the Cherner Chair Company to revive the designs and produce them as their father originally intended. The Cherner Task Chair represents an evolution of the Cherner line – his sons produced the chair from their father's initial sketches and prototypes. Lightweight and hardworking, this swiveling, height-adjustable seat has steel arms with walnut armrests. The padded seat and back are upholstered in high-quality Spinneybeck® Velluto Pelle leather. This is an authentic chair by Cherner Chair Company. Cherner Chair is a licensed trademark of Cherner Chair Company. Made in U.S.A.

    Niels Bendtsen Neo Armchair
    If you ask Niels Bendtsen why his Neo Collection is just as relevant today as when he first designed it, he’ll point out its proportions, which are something he’s developed and perfected over time. In the 1960s, Bendtsen was importing Scandinavian furniture, but began designing his own when he couldn’t find the quality and aesthetics he wanted. Neo is a culmination of Bendtsen’s experiences as an importer and designer. The frame is hand-built and draws on techniques Bendtsen learned from his father, who also designed furniture. The foam seat cushions are sourced from Italy because he hasn’t found any others that offer his ideal mix of firm support and comfort. And the removable cushion covers make Neo an easy-to-live-with collection. Bendtsen’s work is in the permanent collection of MoMA, and he was honored with the 2006 British Columbia Creative Achievement Award of Distinction. Made in Canada. Refresh your Neo with these additional slipcovers.

    Frank Gehry Gehry Cross Check Armchair
    Frank Gehry once wrote that designing a new chair was like being asked "to find the meaning of life while standing on one foot. It's like a Talmudic question." In 1989, when Knoll approached him with that same challenge, the only way Gehry would consider it was if Knoll would set him up in a workshop similar to that of Charles and Ray Eames, which he fondly recalls visiting in his youth. Two years after receiving the Pritzker Prize -- "the Nobel of architecture" – the designer released the Gehry Collection (1990) for Knoll. Paying homage to his Canadian roots, he named the pieces after ice hockey terms; the wafer-thin strips of laminated maple are bent, woven and curled into featherweight yet sturdy forms, evoking the simple strength of hockey sticks themselves. Made in U.S.A. Stamped with the KnollStudio logo, Frank Gehry’s signature and the date of production. Thermoset adhesive provides structural rigidity without the need for metal connectors, while allowing for ergonomic movement and spring-like comfort.

Wegner's belief that a chair "should be beautiful from all sides and angles" is especially evident with his Shell Chair.

    George Nelson Vitra Miniatures Collection: Nelson Coconut Chair
    Each handmade Vitra miniature is a classic in the history of furniture design reduced in size at a scale of 1:6. True to the original pieces in structure and, the miniatures are precision-crafted, making them a thoughtful gift for a furniture lover or design professional. George Nelson once said: "Total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything." So it makes perfect sense that, in 1955, Nelson related a lounge chair to a coconut. Intended to combine comfort with freedom of movement, the shape of the Coconut Chair's white molded shell was inspired by the shape of Eero Saarinen's Kresge Auditorium at MIT. Echoing both the auditorium's triangular shape, as well as a portion of coconut shell, the Chair's unique form invites a number of different seating positions. The shell sits upon a chromed-steel base with three thin legs. A single-piece foam cushion, upholstered in high-quality semi-aniline leather, is molded into the shell. One has the impression that the frame spans the floating, swinging form taut and fixes it to the floor. Each Vitra miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet.

    Niels Diffrient's Freedom Chair (1999) was a breakthrough in ergonomic task seating. Often, ergonomic chairs are likely to be improperly positioned, resulting in the creation of more problems than they solve. The Freedom Chair is simpler than other chairs, eliminating many manual adjustments and creating instead a system of internal mechanisms that respond to the user's needs. A unique counterbalancing tilt mechanism self-adjusts according to the user's weight and movement, thus eliminating the need for manual fixes. Any adjustments can be easily made while the user is seated for accurate positioning. The seat cushion provides excellent shock absorption and weight distribution for unmatched comfort. Made of a two-way stretch woven fabric, the seat cover is durable enough for commercial applications. The Freedom Chair was awarded the 2002 National Design Award from the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt Museum. Made in U.S.A. For big shots who leave small footprints, Freedom is 62% recycled, 90% recyclable and 100% comfortable.

Finn Juhl created the chair for the 1949 Cabinetmakers’ Guild in Copenhagen. During the exhibition, King Frederick IX sat in the chair, causing a journalist to suggest calling it the “King’s Chair.” But Juhl didn’t like how pretentious that sounded and said, “You had better call it a chieftain’s chair,” which the journalist did. (At some point the apostrophe was dropped.) This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Onecollection, House of Finn Juhl™. Made in Denmark. Finn Juhl believed that “the craftsman’s ability to form is probably the same as that of a sculptor.” The Chieftains Chair received the Danish Design Award in the Classics category for 2012.

    Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Barcelona® Chair
    Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Chair and Stool (1929), originally created to furnish his German Pavilion at the International Exhibition in Barcelona, have come to epitomize modern design. Mies van der Rohe designed the chair to serve as seating for the king and queen of Spain, while the stool was intended to accommodate their attendants. Still produced to his original specifications, this Barcelona is of quality fit for royalty. The cushions – welting and buttons included – come from a single Spinneybeck® or Edelman Leather cowhide and are supported by cowhide belting straps, dyed to match the color of the chair. To create the deep, precise tufting, individual panels of leather are cut, hand welted and hand tufted. The chromed-steel frame is hand buffed to mirror-like perfection. The Barcelona Chair was honored with the Museum of Modern Art Award in 1977. The Barcelona Chair is a registered trademark of Knoll®, Inc., manufactured by Knoll; according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A.

    George Nakashima Nakashima Straight-Backed Chair
    Presenting a very special re-introduction: the Nakashima Straight-Backed Chair (1946), designed by George Nakashima for Knoll. Nakashima was an MIT-trained architect who was known to describe himself as “Japanese Shaker.” This was meant to express his belief that his designs should be treated as everyday functional objects, not precious possessions. Such thinking was consistent with the Mingei Movement that influenced Nakashima and his work. The Movement sought to rescue common crafts that had been discarded as a result of industrial revolution, like traditional Japanese joinery and the use of natural. What’s remarkable about his work for Knoll is that Nakashima was able to maintain the sculptural lines and fine craftsmanship of his Straight-Backed Chair even at the mass production level. This reconciliation of art and industry, and the contradictions that accompanied it, continued to fascinate Nakashima throughout his career. His work has been presented at many exhibitions worldwide, including the retrospective “Full Circle” at the American Craft Museum in New York. This chair is manufactured by Knoll. Made in U.S.A.

    Ludwig Mies van der Rohe MR Armchair
    Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s MR Chair was designed in 1927 as part of his contribution to the Weissenhof exhibit in Stuttgart, Germany.

The Armchair is manufactured by Knoll® according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A. The MR Collection includes side chairs, armchairs and lounge chairs.

Every detail of the armchair has been carefully considered down to the glides that ensure stability and prevent the steel frame from damaging carpet or wood floor.

    Niels Otto Møller Møller Model 71 Side Chair with Natural Woven Seat
    In 1944, Niels Otto Møller began his cabinetry company, where old craft traditions, like the hand-woven seat on the Model 71 Side Chair (1951), are still used today. Danish cord seats are known for their durability – easily withstanding decades of frequent use – and the strength of this material made it a smart substitute for tires when rubber was in short supply during WWII. What’s amazing about that history is that Danish cord is made of tightly twisted paper. Being a natural material, Danish cord is very pleasant to sit on and the way that it’s woven provides lasting comfort. Thirty years after he founded his company, Niels Otto Møller began exporting his chairs to Japan, which remains one of its biggest markets due to the simplicity and quality of the design and craftsmanship. Møllers is still a small family-owned business and is now managaged by Niels’ son, Jørgen Henrik Møller. These chairs are authentic, fully licensed products of J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik. Made in Denmark. The seat is woven by hand from one continuous 425-foot-long piece of cord. To make the frames, the company selects the raw wood themselves from environmentally friendly areas. Machines are never used for the final polish, as these devices treat all wood the same and can’t replicate the finish that comes from polishing by hand.

    Niels Diffrient Freedom® Task Chair in Prima Leather
    Niels Diffrient's Freedom Chair (1999) was a breakthrough in ergonomic task seating. Often, ergonomic chairs are likely to be improperly positioned, resulting in the creation of more problems than they solve. The Freedom Chair is simpler than other chairs, eliminating many manual adjustments and creating instead a system of internal mechanisms that respond to the user's needs. A unique counterbalancing tilt mechanism self-adjusts according to the user's weight and movement, thus eliminating the need for manual fixes. Any adjustments can be easily made while the user is seated for accurate positioning. The seat cushion provides excellent shock absorption and weight distribution for unmatched comfort. Spinneybeck Prima, a premium full-grain, aniline-dyed leather, uses a unique blend of oils during the dying process, creating a luxurious feel and putting Prima in a class of its own. The Freedom Chair was awarded the 2002 National Design Award from the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt Museum. Made in U.S.A. For big shots who leave small footprints, Freedom is 62% recycled, 90% recyclable and 100% comfortable.

    Charles Pfister Pfister Lounge Chair
    Charles Pfister was our kind of modernist. “There is a movement away from throw-away society, away from disposable possessions,” said Pfister. “Instead, there is a mounting interest in useful, sculptural, wonderfully constructed objects.” His lounge collection (1971) is both sculptural and wonderfully constructed, embodying his intent to design items that display “opulence without waste.” Pfister was based in San Francisco (another reason we’re fans) and had a measurable effect on the world of corporate interiors in the late 20th century. Looking at his timeless namesake collection, it’s easy to see why. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A. The Lounge Chair’s clean, tailored aesthetic makes it a smart choice for many commercial or residential settings. Short, inset legs give the Lounge Chair the appearance of floating slightly over the floor. Heirloom quality: the Pfister Collection features meticulous construction, timeless lines and high-quality leather upholstery. Charles Pfister was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame in 1986.
