Ah, there's never a dull moment here at chez chairsmith. OK, OK, so chairs chairs chairs could be classed as pretty dull, but hey, this ain't no ordinary chair, oh no! This is the 'Dolphin' long chair by Finnish designer Ilmari Tapiovaara for Skanno, c. 1955. Made of oak, this lounger reminds us of an aged piece of gymnasium equipment with its beautifully coloured wooden base and aperture 'handles'. Lifting the lounger allows its plastic wheels to make contact with the floor - so there's nothing more to do than sit back and enjoy the ride!
