  • Modernica Arm Shell Chair - Dowel 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.

  • Muuto - Cover Chair

    People also liked
    The 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.

  • Muuto - Visu Lounge Chair
    connox.com
    Visu is the result of a design process which nearly took two jears: Muuto presents Visu, a lounge chair which is clear and unobtrusive, without acting fantasy-less. It is about the details that make the Visu lounge chair by the designer Mika Tolvanen this special: Each edge, each rounding and the interplay of forms were more and more adapted to each other in a clever process, until Muuto and Mika Tolvanen were 100% satisfied with the result. The Finnish designer explained about his Visu: ”It was an aim of designing a personal interpretation of the classic plywood chair. I wanted to create a chair which was unobtrusive, timeless and ergonomic, without it acting kind of boring.” The Visu collection by Muuto includes a non-cushioned edition besides an upholstered lounge chair as well as a dining and conference table with a skids frame. We are excited about what models might follow.

The frame that forms the armrests and floor runners are 2 closed loops of laminated wood. Between these rests a single sheet of plywood bent in such a way as to challenge just how far wood can be bent. The headrest and seat edge are tightly rolled to provide the greatest resiliency while the angle was chosen to provide the best position for the patient’s optimal breathing comfort. This remarkable chair is offered with a clear lacquered frame and a seat lacquered in black or white.

  • 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.
