  • Normann Copenhagen Form Rocking Chair
    shophorne.com
    The popular series of Form chairs is now being launched with a rocking frame. Just like the other chairs in the series, the new rocking chair combines a strong visual expression with comfortable curves and an innovative industrial manufacturing technique. The name Form reflects the designer's inspiration, gathered from chair designs throughout history. With a soft silhouette that merges with a rigid Nordic wooden frame, Form is Normann Copenhagen’s idea of the perfect chair. In order to sit comfortably for long periods, people need freedom of movement. The Form rocking chair has a molded plastic shell with a wide, curved seat, which gives plenty of opportunity to change one's sitting position. The thickness of the shell also differs from 1 cm in the seat to 4 mm at the top of the backrest. This ensures strength and support where the weight is borne most, as well as good flexibility for the back. The rocking frame also offers extra potential for movement, and the comfortable, rocking rhythm has been shown to be both calming and relaxing. In addition to the comfort benefits of the rocking chair, it is especially well-suited for creating inviting corners and expressive environments in all types of settings. With its sculptural silhouette and meticulous consideration for details, the Form rocking chair captures one's eye, creating atmosphere and seamlessly completing decors in large as well as small rooms.
  • Artek Pirkka Chair
    shophorne.com
    Ilimari Tapiovaara was committed to designing furniture for a much broader market. His goal was to produce quality inexpensive furniture that was made from materials that were readily available in Finland. The rustic simplicity and smaller structure made the Pirkka Collection very popular for use in the smaller homes in the post war era of the 1950s. The Pirkka Collection is made of solid wood with simple, clean lines which make for stylish functionality. The wood is joined together using no screws making it remarkably lightweight. The rustic table is carries with it the aesthetic appeal of modern design even 50 years later. The table is available in a variety of lengths making it ideal for several different locations. The bench can be paired with the table or used as a stand lone piece. The wider than usual width makes it a comfortable seat. The side chair also pairs well with the table but can stand on its own and the stool completes the set and is available in 4 heights to make it even more versatile. The seats and table top are stained pine with a black lacquered solid birch frame.

  • Modernica Shell Arm Chair - Rolling Base
    shophorne.com
    The Case Study Fiberglass Rolling Chair is the classic office chair of choice. Modernica updated the vintage 4-star aluminum rolling base, with a contract-approved five-star base. The new five-star base surpasses the original design with an added weight-adjustable, tilt-control feature, which locks your chosen position in place. Also added is a fun to use, gas-lift height adjustment lever, for superfast height adjustments. The height is adjustable up to six-inches and the chair is easily tilted forward or back. The base rotates smoothly 360-degrees. Suitable for any corporate or home office space, this base has a five-year normal-wear guarantee. Easily one of the most important and recognizable designs of the twentieth century. The Fiberglass Shell Chairs were originally designed in 1948, as an entry in The Museum of Modern Art’s International Design Competition. At the time, no one could possibly have anticipated the massive success and longevity of this iconoclastic design. In the early fifties, fiberglass was considered an ultra-high tech material. Produced with a mixture of resin and glass fibers, it was lightweight, yet heavy-duty. Initial development and production was through Zenith Plastics—early pioneers of developing fiberglass for household and military applications. As for the chair bases, they were cleverly designed to provide a number of leg options that would be interchangeable within and between the arm shell and the side shell. The shell chairs were first available in the spring of 1950. The first runs of the chairs were produced in only three colors; griege, elephant-hide gray, and parchment—all of which had interesting translucent qualities. The chairs were distributed until 1983. In 2000, Modernica revived this potentially lost art of high-pressure, molded fiberglass. Modernica creates each shell, by hand, one-by-one, in our Los Angeles factory—just as they had been designed, developed, and produced in Southern California in the 1950s. Modernica uses all of the original presses and specialized equipment obtained from Century Plastics. To ensure authenticity of production, the initial shell chair production was overseen by Sol Fingerhut and Irv Green, the same team employed over sixty years ago to develop the original technology. Modernica creates each chair with the charge of adhering to the original tactile qualities, texture, and characteristics that alone are unique to the fiberglass shell chair. Our historic equipment has created thousands of chairs for three generations of chair lovers — and everyday Modernica continues to produce beautiful chairs for upcoming generations. Choose from a wide range of shell colors and chair base options. Modernica offers the flexibility to build a chair to suit your individual style and needs. Please note that due to the nature of fiberglass, some "hairs" may vary in darkness and color due to the singeing/burning process used to create the seat. These fibers add to the uniqueness of each chair. Handcrafted in Los Angeles, U.S.A.

    The Egg Chair offers comfort and privacy at public places. Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg for the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1958. This originally formed chair became a synonym for Danish furniture design all around the world. The Egg is perfectly suitable for receiving and waiting areas as well as for private homes. The specialty at the Egg Armchair is its form that reminds of an eggshell through its curved lines. Thereby the chair invites to a comfortable seating experience and shields the sitting person from its laterals and to the back. Furthermore the backrest is bent at the upper end and reminds of a classic wings chair. That makes the stay inside of the Egg Armchair a private and restful matter, also at public places. Originally designed for the lobby of the Hotel, the designer Arne Jacobsen wanted to create a chair that would suit a high quality surrounding through its sophisticated design and simultaneously offer a bit of privacy in public rooms. The Egg is wonderfully suitable for receptions and waiting rooms as well as for private homes - with or without Ottoman. The Egg Armchair from Fritz Hansen is also available in further colours as well as with the suitable foot stool.

  • Fritz Hansen - Serie 7 Stuhl monochromatic
    connox.com
    Series 7 – monochromatic from head to toes The Series 7, which was designed by Arne Jacobsen 1955, is the admiral of the Fritz Hansen collection. The chair still convinces with its withdrawing appearance and the functional versatility. Fritz Hansen presents the classic chair with new colours by the artist Tal R with suitable bases in 2015 in the event of the 60 th birthday of the designer. Lacquered or painted The seat of pressed veneer of the Series 7 is available in two variants as monochromatic edition. One of them with a varnished seat out of ash wood and another one lacquered. The difference: The painted edition keeps the typical and individual wooden grain of the seat visible, which emphasizes the natural appearance and silhouette of the Series 7. The lacquered models are special with their silky and uniform seat. The wooden grain is covered with an opaque colour-layer in this case. Both editions – the painted and the lacquered monochromatic models – are available in the classic non-colours black and white as well as in two tones of the range of colours of the artist Tal R: Chavalier Irange, an Orient influenced orange tone which is the most exclusive of the new colours according to Tal R, and in Trieste Blue, a mix of violet and blue. Lacquered from head to toes The monochromatic model convinces with its unitary tranquilizing appearance. The classic four legged base appears in the same colour as the seat. The two elements of the chair become a harmonic unity this way. The Series 7 by Arne Jacobsen deserves to belong to the classic chairs of furniture history, since the different modules, colours and bases offer many individual configurations, adapted to everyone. The chair is available in further colours and with different bases and cushions in here on demand. Also in our blog: The Fritz Hansen Series 7 Chair: Monochrome design
