  • 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.
  • Michael Thonet Era Armchair with Upholstered Seat
    dwr.com
    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.

  • Josef Hoffmann Hoffmann Armchair
    dwr.com
    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.
  • Normann Copenhagen Form Armchair
    shophorne.com
    Simon Legald has been ambitious in his design of Form and in this has challenged the traditional type of construction seen in a chair. The goal was to create a chair with a cohesive and unified look as well as a natural integration between seat and base. In order to achieve this, Normann Copenhagen has developed an innovative and sleek mounting solution consisting of four molded plastic connectors, which fit perfectly to the seat of the shell. 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.

  • 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.

  • Kartell - Papyrus Armchair
    connox.com
    Papyrus is the modern version of a traditional wicker chair from the designer Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. The refined design of the two French is realized by the Italian manufacturer Kartell in a transparent polycarbonate. 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. The robust material offers an extremely modern and weightless appeal to the chair. The transparent chair is offered by Kartell in a selection of colours in a retro-trend.

  • Stephen Kenn Inheritance Armchair - Black Canvas & Blackened Steel
    shophorne.com
    Los Angeles based designer Stephen Kenn has long been inspired by clean and simple design aesthetics and the stories inherent in vintage military fabrics. In 2011 he combined those two loves by creating The Inheritance Collection. The collection was the result of an exploration of how furniture is constructed, and then a desire to distill the process down to the barest bones. Likening the process of furniture construction to the way the human body is constructed, the frame, belts, and cushions became the bones, muscles, and skin of each piece. Black canvas cushion covers, black cotton webbing and leather belts interwoven atop a blackened steel frame. Made in Los Angeles, the collection is inspired by the characteristic principles of Soviet Modernism and bold interpretations of Brutalist Architecture through the simplification of form, receptive angular geometries and functional design.
  • Kartell - Super Impossible Chair
    connox.com
    Super Impossible is the further development of the shell chair Mr. Impossible from Kartell. The worldwide first laser welded chair is marked by the seamless connection of two oval half-spheres. For Super Impossible Philippe Starck gave a glossy cover to the design with the different half-spheres. Contrasting the Mr. Impossible, the Super Impossible frame and seat are coloured according to the standards. The transparent look has been replaced by glossy colours. The form of the shell chair with its four slim legs and the inviting seat as well as the frame out of two oval half-spheres survived. The welding of the chair with the aid of the most modern laser technology make the usage of glues unnecessary and thereby guarantees a higher stability. At the same time this construction of the chair allows the realization of a two-colour design in which the seat differs from the frame and the backrest regarding the colours. Kartell offers the shell chair Super Impossible therefore in a black glossy and an elegant two-colour version with a white seat accompanied by a black backrest. As material for the production Super Impossible, Kartell uses polycarbonate synthetics. This makes the chair shock resistant and weatherproof and adapted for indoor and outdoor use.
