  • Modernica Shell Counter Arm Chair - Dowel Swivel Base
    shophorne.com
    The Case Study Fiberglass Dowel Chair is an essential for the modern home and with so many options—it is possible to create your own one-of-a-kind chair. The shell is available in a myriad of colors. Choose your wire-frame in either zinc-plated steel or black powder-coated steel, and finish your design by choosing either solid maple dowels or solid walnut dowels. 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.
  • 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.

  • Normann Copenhagen Era Lounge Chair - Low
    shophorne.com
    Classic, inviting, nostalgic and curved. That's one way of describing the new range of lounge chairs designed by the Danish designer, Simon Legald. But the Era collection is many other things too. The design is well-proportioned, the lines are sharp, and the feel is contemporary. Era combines modern production techniques with traditional furniture craftsmanship in a timeless and characterful design. With its streamlined design and high quality, Era is a durable, long-lasting and versatile collection that easily accommodates modern interior’s need for flexibility. The chair is suitable for many different rooms in the home and can easily be used for different purposes as needs change. The Era collection is designed to transcend generations and is just as at home with lovers of design or families with children, as it is with young couples or their grandparents. The Era Lounge Chair is available in both a high and low version. The legs are available in oak, walnut, black lacquered steel or chrome, as well a chrome frame for the rocking chair. A footstool is also available for the Era collection, allowing ample opportunity for comfortable relaxation and rest for the feet. Choose between two lovely wool textiles with a vivid feel and beautiful structures, or soft, durable leather in a vast number of colors. Simon Legald says: ”It took a while to get the proportions and the interaction between the soft curves and straight lines on the shells just right. It was crucial that the upholstering and stitching were carried out with the utmost precision. I wanted to create individual chairs where each one had its own character. I did this through the variations of the high and low versions, and by the different frames available for the chair. For example, the wooden frames are flat and add warmth while the slimmer, round steel and chrome frames give a more industrial feel. Finally, the frame for the rocking chair is a slightly unexpected and playful choice for a lounge chair.” Priced with Gabriel Breeze Fusion upholstery-other materials available.

  • Eero Saarinen Saarinen Executive Armchair with Metal Legs - Leather
    dwr.com
    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.

This almost makes it appear as though the legs are growing out of the seat. Legs available in oak, walnut, or lacquered steel that matches the seat color.

Simplicity, exclusivity, grace and retrospectives melt together in Papyrus to a modern achetype of the classic wicker chairs. Despite the plastic material that Papyrus is made of, the chair plays with the construction and structure of a wicker chair with plaited seats and wooden frames: Behind the transparent seat from Papyrus hides a carrying structure that is lead through the curved surface of the backrest with its soft bowl form and that finally flows forming the frame. The classic design of Papyrus is contrasted by the used materials. The Italian company Kartell’s experience goes back to many years of manufacturing plastic furniture, now they decided to use transparent polycarbonate for the Papyrus chair.

  • Norman Cherner Cherner® Task Chair
    dwr.com
    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. Cherner Chair is a licensed trademark of Cherner Chair Company. Made in U.S.A.
