  • 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.

  • 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.

    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
