angles and lines

Wednesday, 1 February 2012

There's been far too much Eames talk going on around here lately - like that's a bad thing, but we digress - so in order to address the balance, today we're all about angles and lines.  This gem caught our eye - the way in which the seat appears to float between the frame, the inviting tilt of both seat and back and the strong contrasting shape generated by the lines of the arms and legs.  Designed in 1948 by the Dutch collective Groep &, of which the designers/architects Hein Stolle and Wim den Boon were both members, this chair is now somewhat of a rarity.  A great shame.

  1. Great low-slung look! I like the fabric too.

  2. Some could find this piece of furniture appealing because it could be traditional yet modern. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Chances are you have got ne'er detected of Ergohuman by Eurotech. whereas they do not have the name recognition of Herman Miller or Steelcase they actually build one euphemism of an honest applied science chair. The Ergohuman comes in animal skin ($650) or mesh ($600) associated has each feature you'll wish in an applied science chair. it's superior, comfy, stylish, and includes a headrest. it's terribly admire the Herman Miller Aeron chair however quite bit more cost-effective after you add all told the options that return customary on the Ergohuman. If a designer name is not as important to you as a quality chair, then save your money and buy the Ergohuman. You won't regret it.
