Design Within Reach Outdoor Eames Aluminum Group Lounge Chair
Design Within Reach Outdoor Eames Aluminum Group Lounge Chair

The Eames® Aluminum Group Collection (1958) began as a special project for Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard, who needed seating for a home they were designing for industrialist J. Irwin Miller in Columbus, Indiana. The request was for leisure chairs light enough to move from indoors to out and strong enough to withstand the elements. At the time, the Eameses were exploring ways to use aluminum, which had been strengthened, refined and made more affordable since WWII. They constructed a lightweight die-cast frame for the project, then wrapped it in a sling – a sitting pocket that subtly conforms to the bodys shape. The result was a completely new type of seat and a departure from the idea of a chair as solid shell. While the original concept was for outdoor seating, the Eameses quickly recognized its possibilities for indoor use. However, in 2012, Herman Miller returned the Aluminum Group to its original intent, with new materials suitable for outdoor use. Constructed of 61% recycled materials, this chair is also 90% recyclable at the end of its useful life. Backed by a 12-year manufacturers warranty. This is an authentic Eames chair by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. Features: 360-degree swivel base; PVC-free Outdoor Weave fabric designed to hold its shape and color over time. Pair this chair with the optional Ottoman (sold separately) and put your feet up in style. Materials: Four-star powder-coated die-cast aluminum base and frame; Outdoor Weave mesh upholstery.

Design Within Reach 1966 Collection Dining Side Chair
Design Within Reach 1966 Collection Dining Side Chair

Craving furniture that could stand up to the salty environment of her seaside home in Florida, Florence Knoll called on Richard Schultz to create a decent set of outdoor furniture made out of materials that wont rust or corrode. That was in 1962, and Schultz spent the next four years designing his refined 1966 Collection, originally known as the Knoll Leisure Collection. At a time when most outdoor furniture was stamped out of metal with backrests shaped like bouquets of flowers, the 1966 Collection brought the clean lines and balanced proportions of indoor modern furniture to outdoor living. In the years since its debut, the collection has been re-engineered to take advantage of modern materials like Teflon® thread. In creating the 1966 Collection, Schultz satisfied Florence Knolls request for outdoor furniture that lasts, and many of the sets purchased 50 years ago are still being enjoyed today. The 1966 Collection is included in the permanent collection at MoMA. This is the authentic 1966 Dining Chair by Knoll. Made in U.S.A. Fitted cover sold separately. Materials: Cast and extruded aluminum frame; weather-resistant polyester powder-coated finish; woven vinyl-coated polyester mesh; pure vinyl straps; Teflon thread; stainless steel supports and connectors; clear plastic floor glides.

Design Within Reach Bellini Chair
Design Within Reach Bellini Chair

The world met the Bellini Chair (1998) when Heller placed six chairs in an all-white, 51-foot-long booth at the annual furniture fair in Milan. Many asked, Is that chair by Mario Bellini? as soon as they saw the sleek, sculptural lines. Others questioned if there was a metal frame hidden inside (there isnt). DWR founder Rob Forbes saw it and fell in love. The DWR catalog was already at the printer but he stopped the presses to add the Bellini Chair to the cover. Today, Bellini Chairs are so popular that Heller is producing them seven days a week just to meet the demand. Crafted of injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene, the Bellini Chair is a sturdy, stackable and lightweight chair that is as timeless and beautiful as it is versatile. Exceptionally comfortable with a slightly flexible back, its tough enough to withstand use in a busy restaurant while elegant enough to flatter a sophisticated studio or home. Bellini resides in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and in public spaces at MoMA, where durability counts as much as good design. This chair earned the celebrated Italian architect and designer his eighth Compasso dOro award in 2001. Stackable up to six high; suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Made in U.S.A. Materials: Single-piece injection molding of fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene. Measurements:H 33" W 18" D 18" Seat H 18.5"

Design Within Reach Medici Outdoor Chair
Design Within Reach Medici Outdoor Chair

An alumnus of the Royal College of Art in London, Konstantin Grcic (pronounced GER-cheech) creates furniture that reflects his logical thought process, honest use of materials and respect for production methods. To him, design involves much more than having fun. Its hard work, serious work, says the German designer. You have to think not only about the object youre designing, but everything else about it, from how it will be produced to who will be using it, to what happens to it after it goes through its life cycle. So designing is a big responsibility. Semi-reclined and low-slung for comfort, his Medici Chair (2012) is a modern take on the classic Adirondack. Fashioned only from three-quarter-inch-thick planks, Medici speaks to the production process at its start, when a tree trunk is cut into lumber. This chair is finished using a proprietary heat-treating and hand-oiling process that protects it from the elements. BIFMA approved. Medici is produced by the Italian manufacturer Mattiazzi and distributed by Herman Miller® in the U.S. and Canada. Made in Italy. Materials: Thermo-oiled ash. Measurements:H 31" W 27" D 29.5" Seat H 15.5"

Design Within Reach Finn Lounge Chair
Design Within Reach Finn Lounge Chair

DWR Exclusive Danish designers Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn named their company Norm to express their dedication to working with Danish norms and standards refined over hundreds of years, says Bjerre-Poulsen, rather than rejecting them in the endless search for new. The sincerity of their approach – bypassing flashy design for good design – shows in the quality of their work. These are products that endure both physically and aesthetically. The Finn Collection (2013) they developed for Design Within Reach is directly tied to their philosophy in that it was built on a passion for details, tactility in design and creating for the need. Norm products never crave to be anything but what they are, says Rønn. That is the combination of utility, purity and quiet beauty. The teak frames can be oiled to maintain their original color or left alone to develop a beautiful silvery patina. Removable cushions are clad in UV-protected, mildew-resistant Sunbrella fabric to withstand the elements. Seating can be used with or without cushions. Weight capacity: 300 pounds. Made in Indonesia. The Finn Collection has been honored with a 2015 Architizer A+ Jury Award – selected by 300-plus international architecture and design leaders – and a 2014 Chicago Athenaeum Good Design® Award.

Design Within Reach Outdoor LC1 Sling Chair
Design Within Reach Outdoor LC1 Sling Chair

Le Corbusier regarded traditional furnishings, with their structures hidden beneath wads of padding and upholstery, as relics of the past. Partnering with Charlotte Perriand and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier stripped away all excess to create the sleek, elemental LC1 Chair (1928). The LC Series was originally designed for indoor use, but after a visit to Villa Savoye, where some of the pieces were being used on the outdoor terrace, Cassina was inspired to create outdoor-safe models. The manufacturer spent three years working closely with the Le Corbusier Foundation to develop a product that was within the Foundations parameters: to be the same or better quality than indoor. Cassina opted for better, using hand-polished AISI 304 stainless steel with silver welding, as opposed to chrome, to construct the frames, a material with extreme resistance to corrosion that is actually more authentic to the product; chrome was not used until the 1970s/1980s. The silver welding will patina over time and develop a halo. The back of the chair is attached to the frame by a rod that allows the angle of tilt to change – as the user shifts from one sitting position to another, the chair back moves, offering continuous support. The waterproof, UV-resistant Sunbrella® fabric is held in place by stainless steel springs that provide a comfortable give. Each piece is signed, numbered and, as a product of Cassina's Masters Collection, manufactured by Cassina under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation. Made in Italy. Winner of Wallpaper* Design Award 2012 for Best Domestic Design. A protective, water-repellant cover is included. Materials: Brush-polished AISI 304 stainless-steel frame with silver welded joints; stainless-steel screws and springs; plastic foot ends; Sunbrella® Sling fabric.
