  • Modernica Shell Side Chair - Rolling Base
    shophorne.com
    The Case Study Fiberglass Rolling Chair is the classic office chair of choice. Modernica updated the vintage 4-star aluminum rolling base, with a contract-approved five-star base. The new five-star base surpasses the original design with an added weight-adjustable, tilt-control feature, which locks your chosen position in place. Also added is a fun to use, gas-lift height adjustment lever, for superfast height adjustments. The height is adjustable up to six-inches and the chair is easily tilted forward or back. The base rotates smoothly 360-degrees. Suitable for any corporate or home office space, this base has a five-year normal-wear guarantee. 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.

  • Niels Diffrient Freedom® Task Chair with Headrest in Vicenza Leather
    dwr.com
    Niels Diffrient's Freedom Chair (1999) was a breakthrough in ergonomic task seating. With a height-adjustable headrest, the headrest version offers customized support for the head, allowing for proper eye-level positioning when working long hours at a computer station. The Freedom Chair is designed to fit almost all body types. The seat depth is adjustable to properly support the seat and thighs, while the adjustable back support helps keep the lumbar region of the body in line. Often, ergonomic chairs are likely to be improperly positioned, resulting in the creation of more problems than they solve. The Freedom Chair is simpler than other chairs, eliminating many manual adjustments and creating instead a system of internal mechanisms that respond to the user's needs. A unique counterbalancing tilt mechanism self-adjusts according to the user's weight and movement, thus eliminating the need for manual fixes. In addition, the chair and seatback can be easily raised or lowered, and the seat itself moves forward or back. Any adjustments can be easily made while the user is seated for accurate positioning. Because of a natural lift-and-release action, the armrests are effortlessly repositioned in tandem depending on the task at hand. The seat cushion provides excellent shock absorption and weight distribution for unmatched comfort. Made in U.S.A. For big shots who leave small footprints, Freedom is 62% recycled, 90% recyclable and 100% comfortable.
  • Niels Bendtsen U-Turn Swivel Chair in Kalahari Leather
    dwr.com
    Niels Bendtsen was in his 30s when he became a designer, a move driven by his dissatisfaction with the quality and functionality of products on the market. Decades later, that drive still fuels his obsession for smart, thoughtful design. One 360-degree spin in his U-Turn Swivel Chair (2013), and you’ll see what we mean. In addition to its smooth swiveling mechanism, this chair features a discreet base that tapers as it nears the floor, providing ample legroom and making it easy for you to get up. Choose from natural-looking Aquario leather, which will develop a patina over time, and pigmented Panama leather, which is more resistant to stains. Made in Italy.

  • Norman Cherner Cherner® Task Chair with Upholstered Seat Pads
    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. The padded seat and back are upholstered in high-quality Spinneybeck® Velluto Pelle leather. This is an authentic chair by Cherner Chair Company. Cherner Chair is a licensed trademark of Cherner Chair Company. Made in U.S.A.
