The Organic Chair: A comfortable small reading armchair – emerged in 1940 as contribution for the competition “Organic Design in Home Furnishings” by the Museum of Modern Arts in New York. The cooperation of both design legends Eames and Saarinen was successful: Formally the different variants of the Organic Chair went one step ahead in their time. The armchair however, couldn’t be produced in series, because of a lack of production techniques. Only after 1950 it was possible to produce organic shaped seats and distribute in larger amounts, this is how also Charles and Ray Eames’ famous Plastic Armchair and Saarinen’s Tulip Chair were finally distributed. The Organic Chair is also available as Organic Highback armchair, with a higher backrest and larger and wider armrests. The Organic Conference edition is suitable to be used at tables. Moreover there are different fabrics for it selectable.
- People also likedThe fact that the design has been inspired by the legendary Panton Chair, is instantly obvious to the design expert. But this is only one side of the coin (the front). A look on both sides of this exclusive piece is recommended. The second source of inspiration is discovered quickly: The chair is shaped after the natural form of a naked human body on the back – the model “her” is inspired by the female, “him” by the male body. Taste is a matter prone to controversy and that’s especially true for the hermaphroditic pair of chairs by Casamania, which provoked controversial discussions when it was presented on the Milan furniture exhibition 2009. It’s obvious: “Don’t care” is not a category here and boredom won’t occur. Critics need to admit, however, that the realisation of Him&Her meets the highest demands, in terms of both design and quality. The chairs are also available in red. A high gloss-finished version of the chair in various colours is available against surcharge.
- People also likedThe designer Thomas Bentzen explains about his chair: ”Cover was born out of the longing of constructing a comfortable and contemporaneous armchair out of wood. I wanted a fresh and vivid plywood appearance, but with frame with stable and down-to-earth expressions.” After experimenting during three years, the Muuto Cover chair emerges, a weightless and still strong armchair, which makes the interplay with wooden veneer even more extreme: A layer of wood is folded around the armrests. That’s a playful, decent detail, which is only possible since there is modern wood processing – and it was born out of necessity. It was initially developed without the “Cover”, but then the designer Thomas Bentzen realized how uncomfortable and slim the armrests of his chair were. He added the small detail which makes the Cover chair even more comfortable. Muuto produces the Cover chair completely out of oak or ash wood (in the coloured edition) and without any metal. The wood surrounding the armrests also serves as fixing element for the legs. The Muuto Cover chair is also available in coloured and one cushioned edition. The coloured editions of the chair bribe because of their naturalness, as well as the unpainted wooden editions do – since the grain of the wood isn’t covered by its paint.
- People also likedThe ship-manufacturer says hello! The armchair Maritime by Casamania is the result of handicraft precision-work. The design by Benjamin Hulbert was inspired by ships-construction and the maritime world, which offered a new name to the chair. Maritime reaches the connection of elegant design and rustic approach. Casamania manufactures the chair completely out of oak wood. The distinctive structure of the wood is perfectly integrated in the design and was precisely balanced with the flat surface by Benjamin Hubert. The bent seat of Maritime follows the form of the wood and creates the soft and flowing appearance of the otherwise massive wooden corpus. The viewable structure of the chair doesn’t only remind of ships-construction by chance and stands in contrast with the flat forms.
