Description

The 1950s was an exciting time for forward focused design in New Zealand. Growing demand and greater public acceptance of modern furniture over the traditional, created the perfect platform for designers and architects keen to embrace unique forms, new materials and modern production methods.

The 50s had a playful and often experimental edge as designers interpreted the latest international influences while creating inspired furniture suitable for a New Zealand audience. This rare chair features a highly organic, curved plywood seat raised on a simple steel rod base. This is a chair to fall in love with and is guaranteed to turn heads.

Condition

Materials: This chair is beautifully crafted from curved plywood on a steel rod base
