The Spring Chair takes vintage design and eastern materials to create a vibrant new chair for the 21st century. The form harks back to the late 1920s when Marcel Breuer experimented with the fantastic new material, stainless steel. After the First World War stainless steel became widely available, and the strong metal allowed Breuer to create the Cesca cantilevered chair. The new bamboo Spring chair continues the same innovative spirit.
Bamboo is an amazingly durable and strong material, which also grows quickly making it an easily renewable resource. The bamboo’s inherent strength allows the Spring a super-thin curvaceous profile and ensures a light weight chair. The sensuous curves shine with dense grain, while the materials flexibility allows a gentle soothing rocking motion. An ergonomic design, the bamboo chair provides great comfort as well as modern classic style. Modern Bamboo offer the Spring chair in Ebony, Natural, and Cherry finishes for $785.

Designed by a young Argentinean designer Batti, the fiberglass Placentero lounge chair got its name from combination of two words linked to the pregnancy period, "placenta" and "pleasure". The pregnancy "pleasure" part is arguable but what do we know... The chair itself is pleasurably comfortable - "giving [you] the chance to make any movement and create whichever the position you like". It seems to be stable in any position, even when is upside-down.

"The Monte Bello modular mountain range and sofa system is long and sturdy enough for the whole family, including the kids, the Labrador, the two neighborhood cats and a couple of guests to pile in comfortably. I said ‘comfortably’ not only because of the size but because the sofas system claims to have incorporated high quality cushioning, covering the wooden frame.
The origin of the Monte Bello can be traced back to the European Union design by Kohlmaier Wien, while the credit for its design, production and sale goes to the Walking-Chair design studio, Vienna. "
This Yu Chair is a great furniture products made by Pascal Bardel from his Hong Kong-based Sequoia Studios combine the best of both worlds: technology and art, industry and imagination, the geek and the formal visionary. With his recent “Yu Chair,” he expands his portfolio into larger toys while staying true to an aesthetic that synthesizes French artfulness and Hong Kong tech-saavy. An outdoor/indoor chair made of cast one piece white polyethylene, its cushion is simple rigid foam with a washable cotton cover (available in four colors).
The design is austere yet engaging, minimalist yet distinctive, a combination that befits the name: of Chinese origin, “Yu” refers to jade, but actually translates as “rain” and “the most beautiful stone.”
This orientation toward service and solution is a bit rare in our terrain, but it might be just what the doctor ordered, since “solution” might be a kind of generalized code for all manner of streamlining—in manufacturing, materials, and functionality. All this is a long way of saying that the products made by Bardel from his Hong Kong-based Sequoia Studios combine the best of both worlds: technology and art, industry and imagination, the geek and the formal visionary.
This cool Furniture is a great masterpiece of art by South African-born Ryan Frank (now working and living in London), Inkuku is made from recycled aluminum and recyclable plastic bags. The concept reinterprets a chicken ornament—hence its applicability in this week’s posts (metaphorical yes, but still apropos). The other reason it’s a good fit is that Mr. Frank admits to “creating products…that explore the underbelly of the furniture design industry.” Anyone who gets inspired by the underbelly of anything gets my vote of confidence.
Inkuku (Zulu for “chicken”) chair capitalizes on an aspect of contemporary urban culture to create a unique piece of furniture. Frank put a modern spin on a traditional African craft technique by choosing to use plastic shopping bags and recycled aluminum as the materials for his piece.
The result is a heavily textured, brightly colored chair that would probably offer plenty of cushion with so many layers of thin plastic and trapped pockets of air. Its also an interesting commentary on re-use and recycling - now perhaps we can put all those plastic shopping bags to better use!
This POP 40 Chair is a comfortable chair which is become a great example of IKER’s body-conscious proportions. Their Pop System embodies proper body alignment while using light materials and modern forms. At 31.5”W x 31.5”D x 29.5”H, the Pop 40 is comfortable and functional—and it swivels. As far as I’m concerned, there is nothing quite like a swivel chair. It’s the perfect chair for people with small spaces and for those with great rooms; it’s also the perfect chair for indecisive people and for people with a penchant for rearranging furniture (my own mother suffered from this propensity, perhaps leading to my obsession with interiors).
The metal frame features a rotating base (the locus of the swivel) on four legs from which the chair itself seems to rise in a subtle undulation—it reminds me of a calla lily, but I may have seen too many Mapplethorpes. The top of Pop 40 rises to hug the head, therefore keeping the neck in good alignment. Since Pop 40 can be upholstered in leather, Alcantara, or premium fabrics, it can go from office to living room, satisfying everyone. Alcantara, by the way, is the original composite fabric invented by the Japanese scientist Miyoshi Okamoto in the 1970s (not to be confused with the regular ultrasuede).
Designer Rob Jones presents his Slink Chair made for American Leather. The design of the chair is no diverse with its meticulous tailored look, its relaxed ergonomics and staged stylish. With Slink, American Leather may not be trailblazing towards strange design territory, yet the chair does show a reliable creativity.
The Slink Chair measures 36” w X 40” d X 35” h and apart from leather can also be upholstered in ultra suede. Like all American Leather products, the Slink can also be customized according to the client’s desires. Hence be it lashings of bright pinks or the more placid monochromatic tones, the Slink can be conjured up in any color tone.
When it comes to chairs, functionality should always supersedes style. Fortunately these days, consumers don’t have to chose one over the other as a good chair is not only interminable, but also stresses on innovation, durability and aesthetics. The Slink Chair highlights the congruent interplay of creativity with an unyielding thought process.
