DWR Exclusive Metalworker Xavier Pauchard not only brought the art of galvanizing steel to France but also took the process to the next level by creating the Marais A Chair (1934). The quintessential cafe chair, it was both elegant and robust enough to grace the decks of the S.S. Normandie ocean liner. It takes 100 manual operations to create a Tolix chair, and 80 years after the company was founded, the Tolix name is recognized worldwide as best-in-class furniture. Xavier Pauchards Chaise A is a perfect synthesis created by a man possessed of an understanding of raw materials, and the tools used to work them, said Serge Lemoine, former director of Musee dOrsay, Paris. All Tolix furniture is still made in Autun, the same Burgundy town where the company first began. Slight surface abrasions and markings are characteristic of the material and part of its hardworking machine aesthetic. Stackable up to 10 high. Made in France.

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). Featuring a delicate filigreed appearance thats supremely strong, these airy seats are sculpted out of steel rods. In his art, Bertoia experimented with open forms and metal work, and these 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 the authentic Bertoia Chair produced by Knoll. The Knoll logo is stamped into its base. Made in Italy. The White and Black frames can be used outdoors with limited exposure to the elements. The Chrome frame is not for outdoor use.

The design of Eero Saarinen's Executive Side Chair (1946) 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. 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 Saarinen's Executive Chair.

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 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.
