  • Modernica Side Bar Stool - Dowel Swivel Base
    shophorne.com
    The Case Study Fiberglass Dowel Barstool with swivel base is an essential for the modern home. 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.
  • Mater Shell Bar Stool - Black Leather, Sirka Grey Oak Base
    shophorne.com
    The Shell Chair developed out of Michael Dreeben’s 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 incentivize these skilled tradesmen and women by providing the 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 indebted to Scandinavian design of the mid-twentieth century and embraces some of its core values: it’s clean of line and emphasizes the leather forming and stitching, it’s deeply comfortable, and it’s durable like the saddles it’s derived from. Crafted from thick top-grain leather, with reasonable care, these chairs will last for decades. Frames: Sirka Grey Oak Swivel Base. Leathers: Black Leather.
  • Simon Hasan Bermondsey Stool
    shophorne.com
    Since 2008, Simon Hasan has been recognised for challenging conventional thinking toward material and process. The recipient of two Wallpaper* Design Awards, Simon is in the V&A Museum publication, 21 Designers for 21st Century Britain. His work is in the permanent collection of the Gewerbe Museum (Switzerland), the UK Crafts Council and the Fondazione Fendi (Italy). Inspired by the collision of industrial processes and ancient crafts during the Industrial Revolution, Simon Hasan embraces tradition and technology to create innovative objects with a rich historical context and timeless appeal. The striking Bermondsey stool features a deeply drawn leather seat that has been literally cooked into shape using a medieval armour-making process. The heavy saddle leather is contrasted with highly polished legs to give a generous and comfortable stool for indoor use.

  • Zanotta - Sella Stool

    People also liked
    Without a doubt, Sella is one of the great icons of Italian design from the 20th century. The stool’s design was coined by the brothers Castiglioni, Achille and Pier Giacomo that created it in 1957. In its time the chair was evaluated radical, which is why it only entered the serial production in 1983 by the Italian premium manufacturer Zanotta. Its elegance does nearly appear bizarre regarding its seat that is a traditional racing bicycle seat. Placed on a pink lacquered steel rod and ending in a robust cast-iron foot, a composition appears that magically forms a harmonious and noble object. Sella is considered an extreme design of the creative team together with the Mezzadro stool that has a tractor seat as sitting area. With Sella, the Castiglioni brothers prove their sense for converting everyday objects into original designs. Thereby the stool stands typically for the whole Zanotta collection that displays the Italian design from the 20th century, and all of it until today.

  • Zanotta - Sgabillo Max Bill Stool
    connox.com
    Sgabillo is the direct descendant of the famous Ulmer stool, which was designed by Max Bill 1954 for the new College in Ulm. Since money was tight, they created seats for the students. The stool has the benefit that it is easy to carry it around, even though it is very robust, and that it conduces the students as carrier for their documents. In the following years they walked with their seats through the college. The design was catered on the functionality. The rod (originally made of beech, at Zanotta of birch wood) Sgabillo confers extra stability and conduces also as handle. So it can be used as seat, side table or shelving element, but also as transport box, serving tray or table bonnet. With that the Ulmer stool or Sgabillo is a good example, that destitution sometimes makes oneself creative. Because today the stool is an absolutely design classic.
  • Artek Pirkka Bar Stool
    shophorne.com
    Ilimari Tapiovaara was committed to designing furniture for a much broader market. His goal was to produce quality inexpensive furniture that was made from materials that were readily available in Finland. The rustic simplicity and smaller structure made the Pirkka Collection very popular for use in the smaller homes in the post war era of the 1950s. The Pirkka Collection is made of solid wood with simple, clean lines which make for stylish functionality. The wood is joined together using no screws making it remarkably lightweight. The rustic table carries with it the aesthetic appeal of modern design even 50 years later. The table is available in a variety of lengths making it ideal for several different locations. The bench can be paired with the table or used as a stand lone piece. The wider than usual width makes it a comfortable seat. The side chair also pairs well with the table but can stand on its own and the stool completes the set and is available in 4 heights to make it even more versatile. The seats and table top are stained pine with a black lacquered solid birch frame.
  • Zanotta - Mezzadro Stool

    People also liked
    The Mezzadro Stool is a design-classic of the brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. Already in 1957 they presented the world a first prototype of their stool, which is manufactured by Zanotta since 1970. The seat of this unusual cantilever is a simple tractor seat, which was placed on a wing screw on a bent steel construction by the designer. As another pier, the construction acts as foot out of wood. Every of the parts has a carrying function and nothing on Mezzadro is unnecessary. The design is also outstanding and innovative and draws a bow to the artistic sculpture. Mezzadro reckoned with the stool Sella, for which the brothers Castiglioni converted a bicycle saddle into a seat, as most extreme design of the creative team. It is perfect and a fantasyful symbiosis of shape and function as an exemplary sample of the so-called Radical Designs, a streaming of the Italian design, which seceded itself in the 60s- and 70s- of the 20th century by the doctrine of the functionalism and the famous style - incarnated in Italy through the Bel Design. The Mezzadro Stool by Zanotta is also available in alu, orange, yellow, white and black. Also in our blog: 60s Design Pop Art Design in the Vitra Design Museum
