Michael Payne Osaka Expo Chair

You are witnessing one of the best chairs in New Zealand's modern design history. Curvaceous, yet minimalist, this chair is a jewel in the crown of Michael Payne's design career.
It was first seen at the 1970 Osaka Expo, throwing New Zealand firmly into the limelight of the international furniture design world, and remaining a home grown favourite ever since.
