  • Normann Copenhagen Ace Chair
    shophorne.com
    Flat-packed upholstered lounge furniture sounds like a crazy idea. Hans Hornemann considered it a requirement that the function did not involve any compromise with the design. Ace is constructed from molded plywood, covered with molded foam for the highest possible comfort. The back is flexible, which gives it a springy feeling, ensuring great sitting comfort. In order to reach the goal of this ambitious project, Normann Copenhagen has specially developed production tools, brackets, screws, legs and fabrics. Ace combines intelligent engineering with an elegant visual impression. Ace is delivered in two attractive fabrics, a vibrant velour and a flecked wool textile, as well as soft, exclusive leather. The woollen textile, “Nist”, has been developed in-house by Normann Copenhagen to complete the characteristic visual style. Nist is manufactured using an untraditional weaving technique and contains 52 percent linen, which produces an attractive natural flecking of the fabric. The velour brings Ace a seductive elegance, while Nist gives the chair a more stringent, masculine look. Ace has legs in stained beech, in the same colour tones as the fabrics for a uniform expression. The stain allows the wood’s natural flame patterns to shine through and adds a discrete play to the monochrome colour universe consisting of five inviting shades. In addition to the Ace lounge chair, the Ace collection includes a sofa, a dining table chair and a footstool. Legs: Stained Beech (for Textile), Painted Oak (for Black Leather) or Lacquered Oak (for Brandy Leather). Nist Fabric Colors ( 52 % Flax, 45 % Virgin Wool 3 % Polyamide): Velour Fabric Colors (100% Polyester): Leather:
  • Mater Shell Lounge Chair - Black Leather, Soaped Oak
    shophorne.com
    The Shell Chair is developed out of Michael Dreebens 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 attempt to incentivize this skilled trade by providing these 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 an homage to Scandinavian design of the mid-twentieth century and embraces some of its core values: it's clean of line and is intended to emphasize the leather forming and stitching, it's deeply comfortable, and it's durable – like the saddles it's derived from, it's crafted from thick, top-grain leather, and with reasonable care, will last for decades. Frame: Soaped Oak. Leather: Black leather.
  • 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.

    shophorne.com
    Designed for the Swedish Embassy in 1975, Kryss is a foldable chair with a matching table.

However, Kryss has its own character with its teak frame, fabric seat and back held securely with leather fittings. The chair is available in black Sunbrella fabric or natural canvas with a companion table made entirely of teak.
  • Knoll International Knoll - Wassily Chair
    connox.com
    Already admired by teachers, students and visitors of the Dessau Bauhaus, where it stood in a few houses of the “master town”. And already in 1926, the production beginning year, it was honored as “masterpiece” in the exposition of the Dresden arts hall. The first steel rod lounger B 3 from Marcel Breuer – later known as “Club Lounger” or “Wassily” – soon reached publicity and was part of the interests to the Bauhaus. Finally it should cause a worldwide boom for steel rod furniture that stood for avant-gardism and the break of industrial aesthetics into privacy. With the also new black-silver contrasts which also remind of valuable jewelry and modern machines, he created “magic of precision”, as a French critic wrote. Breuer saw “apparatus of today’s life” in his furniture. They should be weightless, open, affordable, demountable and hygienic. B 3, which has also been available as folding furniture and which has been built by Breuer in his leisure time together with a locksmith, fulfilled these criteria. Therewith he connected to designs of Gerrit Rietveld among others. Breuer didn’t create an everyday object with the Wassily Chair as he desired, but a new furniture type and an “abstract-real-sculpture” (Siegfried Geidion), in whose open geometry the minimalism of new form-finders is displayed. It became a real design icon, a central symbol of modern times and not for nothing the first furniture piece that became a classic in the 60es. By the way: Numerous myths are told around the name giving of the Wassily chair. Some say that it got its name because Wassily Kandinsky was the roommate of Marcel Breuer in the Bauhaus. Others say it only has the name because the chair was a design for Wassily Kandisky’s apartment at the Bauhaus in Dessau. More details: Characteristics: A classic KnollStudio Design; produced after the original design of Breuer. The KnollStudio logo and the signature of Marcel Breuer are imprinted in the lower frame of the chair. Construction: Seamless formed round tube steel, high gloss chromed. Leather straps out of Cowhide leather, Spinneybeck Belting leather and Haired Hide. For usage on hard grounds, the skids are equipped with plastic slides. Surface: The upholstery in Cowhide leather is available in black, light brown and natural white. The upholstery in Spinneybeck Belting leather is available in a wide colours selection. Awards: The Museum of Modern Art Award, 1968 / Recognition as "Work of Art" Germany, 1982. Also in our blog: Exhibition suggestion: The Bauhaus #itsalldesign
  • Modernica Shell Side Chair Rocker
    shophorne.com
    The Case Study Fiberglass Rocking 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 runners or solid walnut runners. 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.

  • Knoll International Knoll - Platner Armchair
    connox.com
    In 1966, the Platner collection from Knoll irresistibly caught the spirit of that time with its decorative, soft and aesthetic forms. The experience of the cooperation with Eero Saarinen made it possible to create the second generation of the one-leg “Pedestal” furniture from Knoll by Warren Platner. Accompanying the changes of cultural values in the 1960s, furniture also became more expressive, which is why the Knoll Platner armchair is a master example: Simple its shape, effective its processing. Platner wanted to create a series of furniture with his steel wire collection, which would charm the eyes more than the plain and empty creations of that time. At the same time, the designs shouldn’t be too ornamental and the function shouldn’t fall into the background. The Platner armchair is made of hundreds of swung, nickel-coated steel wires, which are welded together. The steel frame serves as structure and as decorative element at the same time. Knoll produces the seat out of fiberglass with cold foam cushions. The base of the Platner armchair has a transparent plastic ring, which protects the base and the chair from damages. The frame of the Knoll Platner armchair is also available in a bronze coloured edition on demand. The upholstery is also available in further colours and covers. We will gladly advise you for your individual configuration! More details: Characteristics: The armchair by Warren Platner is available with different covers in different quality levels and colours. Frame: Unique shapes made with vertical round steel tubes, which are welded together with the horizontal, round and framing tubes. Nickel-plated, with clear protecting lacquer.

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.

  • Knoll International Knoll - Platner Easy Chair
    connox.com
    Since the middle of the 1960s already, the wire frame furniture by Warren Planter are clearly popular with design enthusiasts. The Easy Chair by the American designer, which hasn't been produced for a long time in now brought back by the manufacturer Knoll. The Easy Chair and the Ottoman have initially been presented in 1966. The still modern design proves that good design doesn’t get old – since the Planter collection today still has a remarkable number of fans. The production out of steel wire was extremely complicated and new back then, which wasn’t an irrelevant reason for the fame of the original “Planter Collection”: The base construction made of bent wire appears weightless and contrasts the round, comfortable forms of the seat. The Easy Chair by Knoll is the embodiment of a comfortable chair: The seat has an anatomic shape and it is softly foamed. Thanks to the sparcious shape, one will find a comfortable spot in the most different positions. The Easy Chair is wonderfully completed by the Ottoman by Warren Planter. We also offer the Knoll Easy Chair with other cover fabrics and in different colour combinations. More details: Characteristics: The Easy Chair by Warren Planter is available in different fabrics and colour combinations. Construction: Frame made of steel wire, nickel plated and coated with clear lacquer. Seat made of foam fiberglass. Cushion with latex core and Velcro closure, to fix at the Easy Chair.
