Mechano Chair

Apparently the toy called Meccano is pretty much the same as Erector Sets which makes a whole lot of sense.

designed by andre klauser for thorsten van elten, the mechano chair was more than likely infuenced by the popular british toy with a similar name. made of durable powder coated steel, the chair is available in colorful blue, red, white, or yellow. we could easily see these for use in cafes or as an accent piece.

16.1″ x 19.7″ x 31.5″h; seat height 18.1″. made in england.

Tam Tam Stools

The Tam Tam Stool is pretty much a classic, and at $48 you can afford to splurge on a few if the mood strikes you.

Originally introduced by designer Henry Massonnet in 1968, this minimal stool was an instant hit because of its versatility, comfort, ease to carry and snap together. An iconic photo of the very iconic Brigitte Bardot on a Tam Tam elevated the stool to cult accessory. Today, the Tam Tam is made in the same French factory using the same mold that gave rise to the original version. Collect all colors, or mix candy brights with futuristic metallics. Or punch up a room with the graphic silhouette of a single stool in a contrasting color. Tam Tam is terrific.

Mademoiselle Rocking Chair

Truly one of the more elegant and interesting rocking chairs, this design by Ilmari Tapiovaara is a testament to how traditional furniture can be updated and improved upon.

Tapiovaara designed the Mademoiselle in 1956 as a comfortable refinement of the traditional chairs found in many Scandinavian homes at that time. The Rocker’s spindles and plank seat echo early American Windsor chairs, and even Shaker chairs, but with a unique sculptural form. Rather than using four stretchers to support the legs, Tapiovaara designed a different solution: When the Rocker is seen from the side, a composition of triangles appears that’s both functional and aesthetically unique. Tapiovaara gave the chair an extra-deep rock by extending the back rails.

Solid birch with white paint.

Nube Armchair

The sculptural form created by the curved seat and boxed frame is emphasized nicely by the thin chrome legs.

Right angles combine with sensuous curves in the design of the Nube Armchair (2008). Jon and Jesús Gasca’s Armchair is a startlingly simple and architectural structure that can be viewed from any angle. With contrasting colors (one color for the angular parts, a different tone for the curved) and an exposed, chromed steel frame, the Nube works individually or grouped.
