FlexibleLove 16 Chair

I am in love with this chair. Named for it’s ability to be a sort of “flexible love seat”, it incorporates two of my favorite things: Sustainability (made wholly from recycled paper and wood products) and configurability depending on your needs (expands to 720 cm from 22 cm).

This chair uses a honeycomb structure to expand out and can hold up to 16 people and support up to 4224 lbs. You can see it action here.

$799.95

Currently sold out but taking pre-orders.

Thomas Pedersen: Stingray Rocking Chair

This is a great modern, interpretation of the classic rocking chair.

“A modern, dynamic piece of furniture built for comfort and which accommodates a variety of sitting positions. The shape of the rocking chair was partially inspired by a shell. This gives it a beautiful organic design which is raw on the outside but smooth and refined on the inside. A piece of furniture that provides a unique experience of inner tranquillity.

The steel frame has been constructed without any transverse lines thus accentuating the floating appearance of the chair.”

The shell is made of vacuum-suctioned high gloss plastic shell and comes in black or white.

Material: High Gloss 7mm Plastic Shell & Metal.
Dimensions Chair: W 33.5 D 43.3 H 28.3

20-06 Chair-Limited Edition

Not many chairs can boast weighing 5.5 lbs, much less being made out of 80% recycled aluminum. If you are contemplating purchase, there’s also the fact that a numbered run of 500 chairs was made exclusively for DWR, so these chairs are a limited edition and have a number engraved on their backs (2/500, 3/500, etc.). That might sweeten the deal for those of you that like “collecting” furniture.
