  • Artek Tank Armchair 400 - White
    shophorne.com
    The modern flair of armchair 400 was created by Finnish designer Alvar Aalto in 1936 and has become one of his most iconic designs which has earned a place in the Museum of Modern Art as part of its permanent collection. The chair makes a statement to the careful thought of the designer with its bent arms, solid wood frame with metal springs and upholstered foam cushion. This gives the armchair a substantial feel and the low-slung sled base has earned it the nickname of the “tank”. The Tank Armchair has a clear lacquered birch frame with a white fabric seat. The chair is also available using the customer's own material.
  • Modernica Shell Side 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.

  • 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

  • Knoll International Knoll - Saarinen Tulip Armhair
    connox.com
    Eero Saarinen designed the first version of the Tulip Chair in 1953 and with it, he created the base of a revolutionary design classic among all the chairs – there has never been a chair that connected its base and seat in one closed form before. The Tulip Chair was further developed in cooperation with Knoll. Finally, the chair went to the market in its characteristic design known until today, in 1956. The purist designed Tulip Chair reminds us of a tulip, as its name reveals, and it combines modernity with classic Scandinavian design. The background of the design of the Tulip Chair is described by Eero Saarinen as follows: “I wanted to stop the confusing mixture of chair-feet. I wanted to make a unity again out of an armchair.” This is how the four-feet chair as we know it, became a one-foot model. The seat of the Tulip Chair consists of synthetics, fiberglass reinforced. It sits on a trumpet-shaped base which was cast out of light metal and has a rilsan-surface coating. Moreover the chair is available in different editions: Initially there is the selection between an armchair and a design without armrests. The Tulip Chair can be delivered in a rotating or rigid edition, moreover the seat is available upholstered or alone and with a separate cushion. The coatings are available in numerous different fabrics and colours. Also the chair itself can be produced in black and white. Of course we will gladly advise you when it comes to choose the right colour, fabric and shape of your individual Tulip Chair! More details:. Characteristics: The Tulip chairs collection by Saarinen includes an armchair, a chair without armrests, with rotating base or a rigid one and a stool. The chairs are available with a cushion or fully upholstered. The swivel chair with upholstered seat fulfils the collection. The KnollStudio logo and the signature by Eero Saarinen are on the lower part of the base. Construction: Pillar foot out of aluminium casting with rilsan-coating on all black and white models. The platinum bases have a polyurethane coating with transparent finish. The seat consists of bent, fiberglass reinforced synthetics. Surfaces: Seat and frame black, white or platinum.

    The Case Study Fiberglass H-Base Chair is a classic icon without any fuss. Pick your favorite shell for a visually solid chair that will not disappoint. 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

    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. Ground protection with soft, transparent plastic profile or metallic-painted bronze. Upholstery: Form pressed fiberglass seat with foam upholstery. Cushions with latex filling with zip-closure, fixed at the seat with Velcro.
