Organic Chair

Vitra Organic Chair Rep Dec Jan08

This vaunted design was created for the 1940 MoMA exhibition “Organic Design in Home Furnishings.” The chair, which was the first to mold wood into complex curvatures and use the cycle-welding technique of bonding rubber to wood, won first prize at the show and would have been produced by Heywood-Wakefield had the war not intervened. The chair was finally mass produced by Vitra in 2006.
