Design Within Reach Bertoia Two-Tone Side Chair with Seat Pad
Design Within Reach Bertoia Two-Tone Side Chair with Seat Pad

With his iconic seating collection, Harry Bertoia transformed industrial wire rods into a new furniture form. The events that made this work possible began a decade earlier at Cranbrook Academy of Art, when Bertoia met Florence Knoll (then Florence Schust). Years later, the Italian-born designer was invited to work for Florence and her husband, Hans Knoll. Bertoia was given the freedom to work on whatever suited him, without being held to a strict design agenda, and the result of this arrangement was the Bertoia Seating Collection (1952). These extremely strong yet airy chairs are sculpted out of steel rods with a delicate filigreed appearance. In his art, Bertoia experimented with open forms and metal work, and his chairs were an extension of that work. If you look at the chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture, said Bertoia. Space passes through them. After designing his seating collection, Bertoia returned to focusing mostly on sculpture. This is an authentic Bertoia Chair produced by Knoll, with the Knoll logo stamped into its base. Seat pad is secured with metal snaps. Chair made in Italy; seat pad made in U.S.A. Materials: Welded steel rods; bonded Rilsan® finish with stainless steel connections; vinyl seat pad (65% polyester; 35% rayon). Measurements:H 28.75" W 21.75" D 19.75" Seat H 17.75"

Design Within Reach Cesca Side Chair - Cane
Design Within Reach Cesca Side Chair - Cane

Three years after designing his iconic Wassily Chair, which is believed to be the first bent tubular steel chair design, Marcel Breuer created the Cesca Chair (1928). Named in tribute to his daughter Francesca, the simple design pairs the industrial age aesthetic of tubular steel with caning and wood. This chair is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Breuers signature. Cesca chairs are manufactured by Knoll® according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in USA. The Cesca is used in homes and restaurants worldwide, and an original 1928 chair is included in MoMAs permanent collection. Its among the 10 most important chairs of the 20th century, said Cara McCarty, associate curator, department of architecture and design at MoMA. The beech frame is available in an ebony finish. Materials: Tubular steel frame with chrome-plated finish; hardwood beech with cane inserts. Measurements:H 31.5" W 18.5" D 23.5" Seat H 17.75"

The people on the sidewalk below were a bit surprised, but the chair was fine, with the exception of a few scratches. Today, Emeco still uses the same 77-step process that Dinges perfected seven decades ago to satisfy the militarys need for lightweight, corrosion-resistant chairs for destroyers and submarines. The companys proprietary metal processing method yields aluminum three times stronger than steel – and a chair so durable that it has an estimated life span of 150 years. Emecos all-aluminum chairs and stools come with a lifetime guarantee, and generations from now, when your great-great-grandchildren finally manage to wear out a chair thats tested to withstand 1,700 pounds of weight (big kids), the aluminum can be fully recycled and made into something else. Stainless steel foot caps are covered with clear plastic glides to prevent floor scratches and carpet snags. Chair with brushed finish is suitable for outdoor use.

Design Within Reach Panton Chair
Design Within Reach Panton Chair

I want to design furniture that grows up out of the floor, said Verner Panton. To turn the furniture into something organic. Which never has four legs.

His cantilevered stacking chair (1960) was the first single-material and single-form chair to be made, and its been continually improved and updated by Vitra through three decades of development in plastics technology. As striking as a modern sculpture, the Panton Chair is crafted into a single piece of strong, flexible polypropylene thats wonderfully durable and easy to clean.

Design Within Reach Milo Baughman 1188 Dining Chair
Design Within Reach Milo Baughman 1188 Dining Chair

DWR Exclusive The 1188 Chair (1968) was Milo Baughmans favorite chair and the one with which he chose to furnish the home of business partner and friend Thayer Coggin. Given that the Coggin family couldve had any dining chair in the companys inventory, the 1188 is something special indeed. Baughman and Coggin met in 1953 and formed a powerful partnership that lasted for five decades. The North Carolina-based company is still the exclusive manufacturer of Baughman furniture to this day. The designers work was included in High Styles: Twentieth Century American Design at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1985. Baughman was inducted into the Furniture Design Hall of Fame in 1987. Made in U.S.A. Natural leather is prized for its unique markings. Scars, scrapes and wrinkles are not defects. The bronze finish is created by hand and is not uniform. This is intentional, and the marks of the craftsman are left on the chair to add warmth and character to each piece. Materials: Tubular polished stainless steel frame or tubular steel frame with brushed bronze finish; kiln-dried maple and plywood interior; foam and fiber cushions; fabric or leather upholstery.

Design Within Reach Hoffmann Armchair
Design Within Reach Hoffmann Armchair

Josef Hoffmann is well known for the simple, restrained, yet visually interesting dining chairs – several intended for cafés – that he designed early in the 20th century. The influence of the Arts and Crafts movement can be seen in his work, but Hoffmann also embraced the industrial age. Rather than rejecting traditional decoration, he succeeded in making it serve structural principles, which he believed should determine the forms of buildings, interiors and objects. Whether admiring one of his chairs or the Sanatorium Purkersdorf he designed in 1903, you can see Hoffmanns emphasis on straight, unadorned lines, characteristics that are in keeping with the style of the Viennese Secession. The Hoffmann Armchair (1925), designed in collaboration with Josef Frank, is made at the bentwood factory founded by Michael Thonet in 1861. Made in the Czech Republic. Materials: Solid European beech wood from FSC-certified sources; caned seat; water-based stain and clear varnish; nylon floor glides. Measurements:H 31.5" W 19.5" D 21" Seat H 18" Arm H 27.5"

Design Within Reach Broom Chair
Design Within Reach Broom Chair

Imagine, says Philippe Starck, a guy who takes a humble broom and starts to clean the workshop, and with this dust he makes new magic. The dust that Starck refers to is reclaimed polypropylene and wood fiber, two of the materials used to create his Broom Chair (2012). Starck drew the shape of this reclaimed, repurposed and recyclable chair in 2003, but it took a decade to design the chair in these eco-friendly materials. The Broom Chair made its debut at the 2012 Salone del Mobile in Milan, and as soon as we saw it, we knew it belonged in our assortment. Durable, comfortable, colorful and unique in how it makes use of normally discarded materials, Broom is a smart solution that literally sweeps up the waste from the industrial manufacturing cycle. All colors suitable for outdoor use except orange. This is the authentic Broom Chair by Emeco. Made in U.S.A. Made of a new composite of discarded industrial materials, reclaimed even before they enter the long cycle that most recycled materials have to undergo. Listed as an Editors Product Pick by Interior Design magazine in October 2012. Broom is a patented design by Philippe Starck for Emeco. It is illegal for another company to clone this chair. Materials: 75% reclaimed polypropylene; 15% reclaimed wood fiber; 10% glass fiber. Measurements:H 32.5" W 19" D 19.5" Seat H 17"

Design Within Reach Mller Model 62 Armchair
Design Within Reach Mller Model 62 Armchair

DWR Exclusive In 1944, Niels Otto Møller founded J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik in Denmark, a company that has received many awards, including the Danish Furniture Prize in 1974 and 1981. My father never compromised on anything, says Jørgen Henrik Møller. When he designed a chair, he would find the materials and then design the furniture. Each design took him five years to complete. Even today, the company continues to embrace handcrafting traditions to create pieces such as its Møller Chairs. The Model 62 Armchair (1962) is marked by a seat handwoven from one continuous 425-foot-long piece of cord and a frame made of raw wood carefully selected from sustainable sources and meticulously polished by hand (machines are never used, as these devices treat all wood the same and cant replicate the finish that comes from polishing by hand). Møllers remains a small family-owned business, now managed by Jørgen Henrik Møller. This is an authentic Møller Chair by J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik. Made in Denmark. The above-average arm height allows you to rest your arms comfortably without having to lean to one side. Because of this, the arms will not slide under most tabletops, which is precisely what Møller had in mind. Materials: Oak, teak or walnut frame; woven paper cord or leather seat.

Design Within Reach Eames Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Dowel-Leg Armchair (DFAW)
Design Within Reach Eames Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Dowel-Leg Armchair (DFAW)

Charles and Ray Eames believed design is a method of action, and they continually updated their work as new materials became available. The chair that Charles and Ray were designing, explains grandson Eames Demetrios, is the chair thats made tomorrow . The duo originally designed their molded chair in metal and entered it as a prototype in MoMAs 1948 International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design, then refashioned it in light yet strong fiberglass just two years later. In the 1980s, after determining fiberglass production was detrimental to the environment, Herman Miller ceased production to explore more sustainable options, eventually choosing recyclable polypropylene. The company never quite forgot about fiberglass, however, and it recently began researching greener production methods. The Eames Molded Fiberglass Chair (1950) is the end result, constructed using a cleaner process but true to the original with its beloved variegated surface. This reintroduced version comes in a range of reformulated semi-gloss color pigments that faithfully reproduce the vintage ones. Its deep seat pocket and waterfall edge keep you comfortable by reducing pressure on the backs of your thighs. The seat back is left unfinished to maintain a slightly rough natural texture for easier gripping with your hands. This is an authentic Eames product by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. DFAW stands for dining-height fiberglass armchair with wood base. Made of 98% recyclable materials and covered by Herman Millers take-back program for environmentally sound recycling (should you ever wish to part with this chair). Materials: Fiberglass-reinforced plastic seat; maple, walnut or ebony-stained ash dowels; black powder-coated wire; Hopsak upholstery (100% recycled polyester). The process for making shells and the nature of fiberglass mean that each shell is unique and can possess traits such as tiny cavities in the surface, small points of lighter or darker color, or faint circular shadows where base attaches to shell.

Design Within Reach Alfi Low-Back Chair

Born in England, Jasper Morrison was raised in both Germany and the United States before his family settled in London, where he attended Kingston College School of Art & Design and the Royal College of Art. Morrison is a self-described conceptual designer, taking familiar shapes and repurposing them into fresh ones. Believing that what you dont see is as important as what you do see, he designed and engineered Alfi (2015) to be an ordinary chair with extraordinary invisible qualities. Its seat is made from reclaimed post-industrial waste, and its base is made of responsibly harvested wood handcrafted by Amish woodworkers. Adding even more extra to its extraordinariness, Morrison shaped the seat as a nod to cane chairs seen at sidewalk cafés found throughout Paris. The result is simple and simply beautiful, and one hes pleased with: Its one of the most comfortable chairs I have designed. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Reclaimed post-industrial waste seat (92.5% polypropylene; 7.5% wood fiber); solid ash base. Measurements:H 24.25" W 17" D 18.75" Seat H 18"

Design Within Reach Nakashima Straight-Backed Chair
Design Within Reach Nakashima Straight-Backed Chair

Presenting a very special re-introduction: the Nakashima Straight-Backed Chair (1946), designed by George Nakashima for Knoll. Nakashima was an MIT-trained architect who was known to describe himself as Japanese Shaker. This was meant to express his belief that his designs should be treated as everyday functional objects, not precious possessions. Such thinking was consistent with the Mingei Movement that influenced Nakashima and his work. The Movement sought to rescue common crafts that had been discarded as a result of industrial revolution, like traditional Japanese joinery and the use of natural materials. Whats remarkable about his work for Knoll is that Nakashima was able to maintain the sculptural lines and fine craftsmanship of his Straight-Backed Chair even at the mass production level. This reconciliation of art and industry, and the contradictions that accompanied it, continued to fascinate Nakashima throughout his career. His work has been presented at many exhibitions worldwide, including the retrospective Full Circle at the American Craft Museum in New York. This chair is manufactured by Knoll. Made in U.S.A.

His CH33 Dining Chair (1957) was in production until 1967 and, until now, has lived on only in auction houses internationally. Its warmth, simplicity and elegance make it an easeful complement to many different style interiors, inspiring Carl Hansen & Søn to bring it back into production in 2012. This chair was conceived 55 years ago and is just as relevant now as it was then, says Knud Erik Hansen, third-generation owner of Carl Hansen & Søn.

Design Within Reach Saarinen Executive Armchair - Wood Legs
Design Within Reach Saarinen Executive Armchair - Wood Legs

The design of Eero Saarinen's Executive Armchair (1950) began more than a decade earlier, when he and Charles Eames submitted several designs to the Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition at MoMA. The pair, who'd been friends and collaborators since meeting at Cranbrook Academy of Art, won first prize. These fluid, sculptural shapes influenced the future work of both men – for Saarinen, most notably in his Womb, Tulip and Executive Chairs. The Executive was originally made of fiberglass but was later updated in polyurethane to take advantage of the technical advances in plastics. The feel of this classic seat, however, remains unchanged. The molded shell flexes slightly with the sitter, and the contoured plywood seat is supported by metal or wood legs. Unlike Saarinen's furniture, which was consistently sculptural in form, these fluid lines didn't appear in his architecture until the 1950s. When looking at the dome-shaped glass wall of the Kresge Auditorium at MIT, it's not a big leap to see the same shape in the back of his Executive Chair. This chair is Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certified for its use of low-emitting products. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Backed by a five-year manufacturers warranty. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Molded reinforced polyurethane shell; contoured plywood seat; solid steam-bent oak legs.

"How light and slender can a chair be and still maintain its strength?" That was the question at the center of creating the 20-06 Chair (2006), which was designed by architects Foster & Partners for the Smithsonian expansion in Washington, D.C., and built by Emeco. Foster & Partners' worldwide projects include the Hearst Headquarters in New York and 30 St. Mary Axe in London.

The duo originally designed their molded chair in metal and entered it as a prototype in MoMA's 1948 International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design, then refashioned it in light yet strong fiberglass just two years later.

Design Within Reach 20-06 Barstool Upholstered

The frame of the upholstered 20-06 Barstool (2006) is crafted out of 80% recycled aluminum and has a tensile strength three times that of steel. The hand-welded seamless construction is the result of a 77-step process developed in 1944 when Emeco first manufactured its 1006 Navy Chair for use on WWII submarines. The 20-06 Barstool is part of a collection that began with the 20-06 Chair, designed by architects Foster & Partners for the Smithsonian expansion in Washington, D.C. The inventive geometry and ecological considerations they bring to architecture are evident in the entire 20-06 table and seating series. Constructed with an anodized finish and attached vinyl seat pad, the upholstered Barstool is suitable for light outdoor use. The 20-06 Collection has an estimated 150-year lifespan – longevity that means less impact on the earth's resources. Contributes to LEED Certification Credit #4.2 Recycled Content. Made in U.S.A.

Design Within Reach Mantis BS5 SW Sconce
Design Within Reach Mantis BS5 SW Sconce

DWR Exclusive Born in Mainz, Germany, in 1924, Bernard Schottlander fled to England as a Jewish refugee in 1939. He worked as a welder for a short stint during the war before delving into sculpture at Leeds College of Art and the Anglo-French art center in St. Johns Wood. A year later, he went on to open his own design studio and began creating new pieces in limited editions. An admirer of Alexander Calder, the American sculptor perhaps best known as originator of the mobile, Schottlander created his Mantis Collection (1951) as an homage. Movement being intrinsic to his work, he devised clever adjustable frames constructed of strong yet flexible steel rods combined with counterweights (except for the sconce, which has a fixed design). He then fabricated shades from aluminum using repoussé and chasing techniques, relying on his trained sculptors eye to produce beautifully flowing shapes that set the symmetrical and asymmetrical in opposition. His lamps – much like his idols mobiles – appear to defy gravity with their floating forms. Bulb (not included): LED, CFL or incandescent; E12 base; 40W max. This is the authentic Mantis Collection. Made in China. Materials: Painted steel arm and base; painted aluminum shade; nickeled brass ball joint. Measurements:H 8.25" D 17.75" Shade Diameter 8.75", 3.5 lbs.

Design Within Reach Matera Side Table
Design Within Reach Matera Side Table

DWR Exclusive The Matera Collection (2007), focused on delivering ample storage, is the work of Sean Yoo, who at the time of its conception lived in Matera, Italy (thus its name). Born in Seoul, Yoo grew up in Los Angeles and was working as a city planner when a visit to the Noguchi Museum in New York inspired him to pursue design. I was particularly attracted to the way Noguchi applied sculptural qualities to common household objects, says Yoo. It seemed to give meaning and purpose to otherwise meaningless objects. The Matera Collection features clean lines nicely finished with beveled edges, running match wood grain and exposed-slot mortise-and-tenon corner joints. All pieces have slotted bases that lend an airy feel. The Matera Side Table has a C-shape floating design meant to accommodate the Matera Bed with Storage – placed next to the bed, the table allows free access to the drawer facing it, which passes right through its base when opened.

After refining their molded plastic chairs, Charles and Ray Eames began experimenting with making a chair from welded wire. To succeed, the Eameses had to figure out how to create a design with the strength they needed while keeping manufacturing costs as low as possible. Ultimately, they decided on using lighter-gauge wire doubled over into a rim that sandwiches heavier inner wire to form their Eames Wire Chair (1951), which won them their first American mechanical design patent. Its organic shape and airy silhouette are complemented by whats commonly referred to as an Eiffel base (because of its trademark shape). This is an authentic Eames product by Herman Miller.

Design Within Reach AntTM Chair with 3 Legs in Colored Ash
Design Within Reach AntTM Chair with 3 Legs in Colored Ash

Originally designed for the canteen at Novo Nordisk, an international Danish healthcare company, the Ant Chair (1952) faced an unclear future when the manufacturer expressed concern about its potential. But Arne Jacobsen believed in his product and offered to buy all the chairs if they didn’t sell. Of course, he never had to make good on that offer, as the Ant Chair quickly became an international success. Jacobsen shaped the core of Danish design identity when he accommodated three different bends in one piece of plywood, simply by narrowing the chair back. This chair is ideally suited to the human body. Its seatback has a comfortable give, and its waterfall seat edge doesn’t press into legs. Stackable up to six high.

Eero Saarinen called himself a “form giver,” and everything he designed – from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis to his Womb Chair to his Pedestal Table – had a strong sculptural quality. “The underside of typical tables and chairs makes a confusing, unrestful world,” said Saarinen. In a 1956 cover story in Time magazine, he announced that he was designing a collection to “clear up the slum of legs in the U.S. home.” Later that year, he completed his Pedestal Table and Tulip Chair Collection (1956) with its cast aluminum base inspired by a drop of high-viscosity liquid.
