Charles Eames

MKX-2 wire side chair by Charles Eames for Herman Miller, circa 1954 Bikini upholstered in a medium height for reading or relaxing. Black metal legs, two-piece pad H : 73cm x W :4 8,2cm x D : 55,8cm x SH : 42,8cm "The abbreviated Eames DKX Chair, part of the Wire Mesh Series, stood for Dining (D) Height, K-Wire (K) Chair on X Base (X). The MKX is the same only in a shorter medium (M) height. The LKX was the lounge (L) height version. As with all the mesh series, the numbers represented the upholstery cut, with 1 meaning the full chair cover and 2 the two-part ‘bikini’ version. The first release of the four-legged X base version was in two sizes, the Dining (DKX) and the Lounge height (LKX) versions. In 1954, following the same development of the bases of the plastic series chairs, the LKX was discontinued and replaced with an ever-so-slightly higher version deemed the Medium (MKX) height Wire chair. The X in the name of the DKX, LKX and MKX stands for the X base, an original patterned base with a clear criss-cross where the base joins the top. This base was developed for the plastic series and was later utilized for the wire mesh chairs. The X base was replaced in 1954 for the lighter and more versatile ‘H Base’ but for the sake of continuity the X in the name stayed, even to this day with the later re-launch."

Yanagi Sori

Designed by Sori Yanagi in 1954 and won the golden compass in 1957.

The concept of symetry is beautifully manifested in the joined wings of Sori Yanagi’s Butterfly Stool. Executed using the pressed plywood molding technique invented by Charles and Ray Eames, this graceful stool marries ancient Japanese forms with modern Western materials.
The stool is made from two curving and inverted L-shaped maple sections, each forming one leg and half of the seat. A metal rod midway between the legs serves as a stretcher and holds the stool together.
This exemplar was made by Tendo Mokko during the 90's.

Alvar Aalto SOLD

Armchair 42 – or “Small Paimio” – was designed by Alvar Aalto for the Paimio Sanatorium in 1932. This sculptural chair seems to test the limits of bent plywood manufacturing. The frame is made from laminated birch shaped to produce a cantilevered chair; the seat and back are created from one piece of form-pressed plywood. Alvar Aalto chose to use native birch for its natural feel and insulating properties. The fluidity of the design creates a comfortable and soft place to sit. The result is an Armchair 42 without straight lines, an armchair of exceptional aesthetic appeal, ensuring that as the chair ages, it remains perfectly balanced. This edition by Artek from the early eighties has a nice patina on its white seat and back. Other Alvar Aalto pieces : Width:60 cm Depth:75 cm Height:72 cm Seat height:36 cm

Robin Day

Childsply chair by Robin Day for John Haddock. In 1999 Robin Day supported a charitable exhibition conceived by twentytwentyone (London) to raise money for the Children's Hope Foundation. Along with 12 other leading designers Robin was invited to design a child's chair from a single piece of plywood. The project was called Childsply. Two of the chairs were made by Windmill Furniture and auctioned off. Subsquently twentytwentyone commissioned a further 30 of the chairs to be made by Robin's friend John Haddock. It is one of these. Robin Day proposed a design that allowed several chairs to be cut from a single sheet of plywood but despite the apparently simple design and efficient cutting programme, the Childsply chair is a complex construction that marries flat-cut and formed plywood.
