  • Modernica Shell Arm Chair - Prince Charles Base
    shophorne.com
    In 2009, Peter Shire and the Modernica Studio teamed up and designed the Prince Charles Base. By combining the modern and the classic, the chair has been described as a distant cousin of Queen Anne. “Shire’s interpretation on the modern classic incorporates 300-years of furniture design into a single chair. By giving the signature shell chair a set of violin-like legs, Shire’s adds a touch of the Victorian era to the seat.” 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.
  • Mater Shell Chair - Saddle Leather, Oak Frame
    shophorne.com
    The Shell Chair developed out of Michael Dreeben’s ongoing interest in traditional craft practices in north India - in this case saddle making. Exquisitely made saddles have been produced in India for centuries, and although some horse culture persists, it’s waning as India becomes more technologically developed. The Shell Chairs incentivize these skilled tradesmen and women by providing the artisans with a new market for their craft, and hopefully encouraging them to pass it on to younger generations. The shape of the chair is indebted to Scandinavian design of the mid-twentieth century and embraces some of its core values: it’s clean of line and emphasizes the leather forming and stitching, it’s deeply comfortable, and it’s durable like the saddles it’s derived from. Crafted from thick top-grain leather, with reasonable care, these chairs will last for decades. Frames: Solid oak frame. Leathers: P remium brown saddle leather
  • Normann Copenhagen Knot Chair
    shophorne.com
    The Japanese designer Tatsuo Kuroda has created a chair for Normann Copenhagen which unites classic materials with modern aesthetics. The Knot chair has a clean and simple expression that leads the thoughts to classic 1950s furniture. The overall impression is determined by the details, such as the dominant jointing points in natural paper cord, which also provide optimal sitting comfort. Tatsuo Kuroda is a graduate of Tama Art University in Japan and has worked with product and furniture design since 2006. The structural components of the Knot chair are tied together with paper cord, which provide both support and a stylish visual expression; and, despite his Japanese background, Tatsuo has been inspired by traditional Scandinavian design. Tatsuo Kuroda explains: “My thoughts behind Knot was to create a chair which is a reinterpretation of itself - a chair that is both classic and modern at the same time. I am inspired by Danish design classics in which function and aesthetics come together." The Knot chair has all of the characteristics we expect of a chair, but with a modern Scandinavian look characterized by workmanship working hand in hand with good sitting features. The result is comfort for both body and eye.
  • Jens Risom Jens Chair in Leather
    dwr.com
    Running into legendary designer Jens Risom in the halls at DWR headquarters is just one of the many pleasures of working here. Over the last several years, we’ve collaborated with Risom on a number of new product launches and re-launches like this Chair (1949) originally designed for the Caribe Hilton Hotel in Puerto Rico. Decades have passed since this collection was in production, and Risom worked closely with us on every step of its return, from reviewing prototypes, to adjusting tiny details, to advocating cost effective changes in the manufacturing process. Like all of the furniture by this iconic designer, this collection has a subtle Scandinavian sensibility that works with modern and traditional settings. Or, as Risom puts it, “Good design means that anything good will go well with other equally good things.” Slipcovers are removable for cleaning. Made in U.S.A.

    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.
