Vegetal Chair

Vegetal, Vegetable…whatever the name, pay attention to these five things: lightweight, sturdy, stackable, indoor/outdoor appropriate, and comfortable. The price point isn’t exactly the most affordable thing, but the chair is notable nonetheless.

Nature served as the inspiration for this chair’s organic design. Its plant-like structure is made from dyed recyclable polyamide using innovative injection-mold technology. Lightweight, sturdy, and comfortable, the chairs stack up to three high and are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Hand-wash only. Made by Vitra.

Family Chairs by Lina Nordqvist

Ah, how great are these chairs by Lina Nordqvist? Each one has a slightly different back and leg spindle design, yet they all form a family around a table. Very fitting for a dining room, don’t you think?

Inspired by objects that possess individuality, something beyond function, the designer transformed something well-known and traditional into something unexpected. A fresh interpretation of Swedish stick-back chairs, each of these four chairs features a slightly different yet complementary design on the back and on the spindles between the legs. Together they form a family, each displaying a distinctive character around the table. Versatile and practical, they can also be used throughout the home or office.

Made of lacquered birch wood. Wipe with a damp cloth.
Size: 34.5h x 15.75w x 15.75″d; Seat: 17″h

Reee Chair

This chair is made in the UK from recycled Sony Playstation consoles. While it’s a little alarming that there’s enough Playstations to recycle into furniture, it’s nice to know that they become chairs instead of ending up in landfills. (Just so you know, the 2.4 kg of plastic saved/recycled is about 5.29 lbs.)

W 56 x D 47 x H 80 (cm)

Shadow Chair

This chair at first appears to balance only on its front legs. Clever.

A chair that integrates shadow into its structure…At first glance it is a simple chair that seems to defy gravity by standing upright while only having two front legs, but on closer inspection the shadow is part of the chair and made from steel, which is attached to a metal frame built inside the chair.

Supernatural Armchair

The Armchair version of the Supernatural Chair is way more of a head turner with those curvy arms…super nice.

“this new stackable chair has a structure that is the result of an evolution, more than of a design process. It represents a new vision of form, generated by digital data, resulting in a chair to be used every day, slender, lively and healthy. The liquid, organic nature of its form combines the beauty of the human anatomy with the most advanced process of industrialization of 21st-century polymers.” -Ross Lovegrove

Prince Charles Side Chair

Messing with a good thing can sometimes be disastrous, but other times it’s interesting and strange in a good way, which is the case of this interpretation of the Eames classic.

Modernica’s design studio has collaborated with artist Peter Shire to design the Prince Charles Chair based on the company’s Case Study Fiberglass shell chair and playfully named after the originator of the design, Charles Eames…The Prince Charles chair is an elegant and ironic juxtaposition – past and present. It is an innovative combination of two recognizable styles artfully embracing 300 years of furniture design into a single chair. This, along with the chair’s Queen Anne-like legs, which look like broken violin cut outs, prove opposites attract.

from $359.00-$469.00, depending on the seat selected (arm, shell or wire)
