  • 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.

  • Eero Saarinen Saarinen Executive Armchair with Metal Legs - Leather
    dwr.com
    The design of Eero Saarinen's Executive Armchair (1950) began more than a decade earlier, when he and Charles Eames submitted several designs to the Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition at the MoMA. The pair, who'd been friends and collaborators since meeting at Cranbrook Academy of Art, won first prize. These fluid, sculptural shapes influenced the future work of both men; for Saarinen, most notably in his Womb, Tulip and Executive chairs. The Executive was originally made of fiberglass but was later updated in polyurethane to take advantage of the technical advances in plastics. The feel of this classic seat, however, remains unchanged. The molded shell flexes slightly with the sitter and the contoured plywood seat supported by metal or wood legs. Unlike Saarinen's furniture, which was consistently sculptural in form, these fluid lines didn't appear in his architecture until the 1950s. When looking at the dome-shaped glass wall of the Kresge Auditorium at MIT, it's not a big leap to see the same shape in the back of his Executive Chair. This chair is Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certified¿ for its use of low-emitting products. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A.

  • Normann Copenhagen Form Rocking Chair
    shophorne.com
    The popular series of Form chairs is now being launched with a rocking frame. Just like the other chairs in the series, the new rocking chair combines a strong visual expression with comfortable curves and an innovative industrial manufacturing technique. The name Form reflects the designer's inspiration, gathered from chair designs throughout history. With a soft silhouette that merges with a rigid Nordic wooden frame, Form is Normann Copenhagen’s idea of the perfect chair. In order to sit comfortably for long periods, people need freedom of movement. The Form rocking chair has a molded plastic shell with a wide, curved seat, which gives plenty of opportunity to change one's sitting position. The thickness of the shell also differs from 1 cm in the seat to 4 mm at the top of the backrest. This ensures strength and support where the weight is borne most, as well as good flexibility for the back. The rocking frame also offers extra potential for movement, and the comfortable, rocking rhythm has been shown to be both calming and relaxing. In addition to the comfort benefits of the rocking chair, it is especially well-suited for creating inviting corners and expressive environments in all types of settings. With its sculptural silhouette and meticulous consideration for details, the Form rocking chair captures one's eye, creating atmosphere and seamlessly completing decors in large as well as small rooms.
  • Jean Prouvé Prouvé Cité Armchair
    dwr.com
    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.

  • 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).

  • Vitra - Plywood Group LCW Chair

LCW stands for "Lounge Chair Wood": LCW is an elegant lounge chair and is made of the best wood. Charles and Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with new processes for optimizing the way three-dimensionally moulded plywood fits the contours of the body. The result was the Plywood Group, with its moulded plywood seat, backrest and base. The organic shape and the wood's cosy warmth invite users to sit down and relax. For the production of the Plywood Group are wood layers bent. The thin wood shells from back to seat support the body with lightly bent areas. The single elements are tied up with elastic rubber layers on the base. They give you extra comfort. The meeting with the legendary designer couple Charles and Ray Eames was for Vitra a fundamental meaning: With the production of their designs in 1957 started the history of the manufacturer as a furniture producer. Charles and Ray Eames impressed Vitra a lot. The LCW Chair is also available in different colours and with felt cover.

All the textiles are made of lovely wool blends with vivid expression, beautiful structures and plenty of play. In addition, they are all extremely durable and suitable for intensive use.

Just Chair is just as beautiful when seen from below as from above. The frame is discretely tucked into the chair's molded shell, and the shell's tapering thickness gives it a friendly and welcoming expression.

  • Modernica Shell Counter Arm Chair - Dowel Swivel 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.

  • Vitra - Vegetal

    People also liked
    Shapes from the world of vegetation serve as inspiration for Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec’s Vegetal chair, as they did for Algues. Its plant-like structure made of coloured polyamide goes to the limits of the technically feasible, and the six colours (unusual for plastic chairs) emphasise the link to nature. „As designers, it is our task to find new structures, new construction forms.“ - Ronan Bouroullec. The interest of Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec in organic shapes is already demonstrated in the “Algues”, which they designed for Vitra in 2004. This passion - and the knowledge of a technique, with which in North America in the 19th century young trees were shaped into chairs during their growth - inspired the designers to create a chair which looks as if it would have naturally grown. Neither Ronan nor Erwan Bouroullec nor Vitra knew what kind of boundaries would have to be explored until the new chair - Vegetal - would meet the common standards: They didn’t want a design that merely looked as if he had grown naturally. They rather wanted the construction of the organically grown structure as close as possible to reality, in order for it to be credibly reinterpreted. It took four years of intensive joint work between the first ideas to the presentation of the finished chair made from coloured polyamide: The flat, branch-like ribs are asymmetrically intertwined on three levels to form the seat shell, which is shaped as an irregular circle and supported by four legs that appear to sprout from the ground. The goal was to create a chair that aspires to look like natural vegetation while simultaneously incorporating the necessary strength, stability and comfort. The process involved countless prototypes and an intense exploration of injection moulding technology. The Vegetal Chair by Vitra is available in different colours with plastic gliders (for carpets), or optionally with felt pads (for hardwood floors) and with a chrome-plated and powder coated steel frame.

  • Vitra - Miniature B3 Wassily
    connox.com
    Marcel Breuer was one of the most important designers of the early modern age. His biography is closely linked to the history of the Bauhaus, founded by Walter Gropius in 1919. The club chair B3, known today as »Wassily« was also created in connection with this renowned institution. Lt is the first piece of seating furniture in the history of design to be made from seamless, precision-drawn tubular steel. Lts transparency and visible structure are expressions of the stringent aesthetic approach that prevailed in architecture and design following World War I. Marcel Breuer replaced the massive upholstered corpus of the traditional club chair with a skeleton-like construction made out of bent steel tubing, thereby overcoming the physical weightiness of conventional seating. He exploited the elasticity of the material, complementing it with tautly stretched fabric strips of reinforced canvas for the seat and back. The B3 did not acquire the name »Wassily« until the beginning of the sixties, when the Italian furniture producer Dino Gavina purchased the manufacturing rights: Marcel Breuer had designed the armchair for the house of the painter Wassily Kandinsky, who taught at the Bauhaus from 1922 until 1933. The original of the Wassily B3 was designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925 and it is produced as 1:1 model by The Knoll Group, New York/USA since 1968. The here offered miniature by Vitra (scale 1:6) consists of nickel plated steel tube and black leather.

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.
