  • Afteroom Lounge Chair in Cognac design by Menu
    Combining the iconic to create the new. The two newcomers from Afteroom – the Lounge Chair and the Dining Chair - are the result of combining the inspiration from two iconic chairs of early modernism. The 'Thonet Bentwood Armchair' by Michael Thonet and the 'Spanish Chair' by Børge Mogensen. The combination of these two classics became something new – just as elegant as the Thonet and as comfortable as the Spanish Chair. Relax and enjoy. Afteroom aka Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei are powered by an intriguing interest in proportions, materials and cultures. We're proud to feature several of their designs in our Spring 2015 collection and the common thing for all of them is that they share the same qualities of simplicity, inspired by classic Scandinavian features. Besides being really warm and nice people, Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei are two really talented designers. They originate from Taiwan, but work from their studio in Stockholm. Their design philosophy pivots around simplicity and honesty. When asked to elaborate they say, "We often describe ourselves as advocates of time on a mission to create beautiful products. Products, which will only get more valuable as time passes by. It's design you can grow old with". Designer: Afteroom (SE) Dimensions: 31.5"w x 27.6"d x 29.5"h. Materials: Powder-coated Steel Frame, Leather Seat and Back. Cognac Leather.

  • Mater Shell Lounge Chair - Black Leather, Soaped Oak
    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.

  • Jean Prouvé Prouvé Cité Armchair
    Favored among collectors, the Cité Armchair (1930) exhibits a certain static dynamism inherent to Jean Prouvé's work with its low build and angled backrest. A resilient fabric sling seat is stretched over the chair's tubular steel frame to produce a hammock effect, following the contours and movement of the body for constant support. Distinctive sheet steel runners serve as the base, giving way to thick leather belt armrests that invite contact with their smooth tactility. The tobacco fabric has a red frame; the black fabric has a matching black frame. One of Prouvé's few designs that he used in his own home, the Cité Armchair is a compelling lounge option for residential and commercial spaces. Reproduced to exacting standards by Vitra. Made in Germany.
  • Dowel - Arm Shell Chair By Modernica
    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 wire-frame in either zinc-plated steel or black powder-coated steel, and finish design by choosing either solid maple dowels or solid walnut dowels. The Fiberglass Shell Chairs were originally designed in 1948, as an entry in The Museum of Modern Art’s International Design Competition. The shell chairs were first available in the spring of 1950. The first runs of the chairs were produced in only three colors; greige, 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 their 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. 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. 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. Features.

  • Power Play Club Chair By Knoll
    Inspired by the surprising strength of the apple crates he had played on as a child, Frank Gehry created this thoroughly original collection of bentwood chair and table designs. Gehry's architecture draws its strength from the sculptural approach with which he has expanded the vocabulary of buildings. Bringing this same approach to furniture, Gehry constructed the entire collection with interwoven strips of maple. The ribbon-like designs transcend the conventions of style by focusing, as the great modernists did, on the essential challenge of deriving form from function. Features: Seat cushon available in a range of KnollTextiles and Spinneybeck leathers for both the chair and ottoman. Thick high resiliency foam used for cushions. Cushions snap-lock to the underside of the chair. Frame constructed of hard white maple veneer strips, laminated 6 to 9 thick with high-bonding urea glue. Thermo-set assembly glue provides structural rigidity without the need for metal connectors. To maximize tension compression, limited assembly glue is used in woven seat: weaves flex in unison for spring-like comfort. Chair back flexes for added comfort. Clear plastic glides with matte frost finish included. Power Play Club Ottoman has one pair of legs that can be locked in upright position to create a slanted leg and foot rest, or can be folded underneath for low foot rest or floor cushion. The underside of each piece is embossed with the Knoll logo and Frank Gehry's signature. GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified. More fabric and color options are available;

  • George Nelson Vitra Miniatures Collection: Nelson Coconut Chair
    Each handmade Vitra miniature is a classic in the history of furniture design reduced in size at a scale of 1:6. True to the original pieces in structure and, the miniatures are precision-crafted, making them a thoughtful gift for a furniture lover or design professional. George Nelson once said: "Total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything." So it makes perfect sense that, in 1955, Nelson related a lounge chair to a coconut. Intended to combine comfort with freedom of movement, the shape of the Coconut Chair's white molded shell was inspired by the shape of Eero Saarinen's Kresge Auditorium at MIT. Echoing both the auditorium's triangular shape, as well as a portion of coconut shell, the Chair's unique form invites a number of different seating positions. The shell sits upon a chromed-steel base with three thin legs. A single-piece foam cushion, upholstered in high-quality semi-aniline leather, is molded into the shell. One has the impression that the frame spans the floating, swinging form taut and fixes it to the floor. Each Vitra miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet.
