Whoa, check this chair out. If you’re considering a lounge chair in a major-purchase sort of way, you might consider this one for it’s relative rarity.
Originally designed in 1963, just 300 pieces were made due to the complexity of the chair’s design. Just a few of the originals exist today. One is in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. In keeping with Jalk’s intentions, the chair and tables are reproduced in their original materials, teak and Oregon pine as well as black-stained ash. Two pieces of wood are moulded and conjoined in this daring design, which won Britain’s Daily Mail Design Competition in 1963.
