Description:

The Organic Chair ? a small and comfortable reading chair ? was developed in several versions for the 1940 ?Organic Design in Home Furnishings? competition organised by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. With its sculptural shapes, the design was ahead of the times. But due to the absence of suitable manufacturing techniques, the armchair never went into production. Not until 1950 did it become possible to manufacture and market organically shaped seat shells in large quantities, as exemplified by Charles and Ray Eames's famous Plastic Armchair or Saarinen's Tulip Chair. The Organic Chair is also available in a version with an extended backrest and longer, wider armrests ? the Organic Highback armchair.

Dimensions:

42.25 h x 33.5 w x 40.0 d

Materials:

Seat Shell: laminated. Upholstery/Cover: polyurethane foam with Hopsak or Credo fabric cover. Legs: black ash or natural oak, with protective varnish.

Care:

To care for cover fabrics, simply hoover dust and lint regularly using an upholstery nozzle. Stain removal: Fresh stains can usually be removed quickly by wiping immediately with an absorbent, lint-free sponge or cloth. Start from the outer edge of the stain and work towards the centre to avoid creating a halo effect. We recommend using normal household distilled water to prevent limescale residue from building up on dark fabrics after drying. Depending on the type of stain, the use of solvents may be necessary. In such cases, it is essential to consult a professional. Under no circumstances should cover fabric surfaces be rubbed vigorously. Please be sure to consult a specialist before using any solvent-based cleaning product.
