The Monster Chair For Moooi by Marcel Wanders

A stylish puffy quilted black synthetic leather chair available with or without a fabulous "monster face" sewn into the back. The chair, originally designed in 2010 for Moooi by designer Marcel Wanders is part of a family of seating from Moooi designed by Wanders and comes in two styles, one with a flared and rounded back:

Or in a simple squared off back (shown without the monster face):

Here you can see both styles in situ in the Andaz Hotel dining room:

The chairs have a steel frame, fire retardant synthetic leather upholstery and have been subjected to an abrasion test of >50.000 rubs.

The Monster chair was joined by the Monster barstools in two heights in 2011 and the Boutique Sofa, but neither appears to be available with the whimsical monster face.

On Wanders own site he shows a Monster Pillow (below), but I believe that was never produced:

An Update On The Barceloneta - The Modern, Indoor/Outdoor Version of The Classic Barcelona Chair.

When it was first announced that Serralunga was offering an outdoor/indoor version of the classic and elegant Barcelona Chair that was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and produced by Knoll® in 1929, I brought you the news with computer generated images of prototypes and the then four colors in which it was to be available (shown below).

Since then, Serralunga has produced the lightweight and weatherproof chair (which was designed for them by Italy's Deep Design) and I have actual photography, the technical specs and the five colors in which it is now available.

A beautiful modern, lightweight indoor/outdoor chair option for lovers of modern classic design.


Herman Miller Updates An Eames Classic With Wood. The New Molded Wood Eames Chair.

The Molded Plastic Chair (or Shell chair) that Mid-Century Modern design lovers have grown to covet is the epitome of the Eames process. Since its launch in 1950, details like color and height options, shock mounts, base variations, and use of upholstery have received constant improvements.

Manufacturing processes have been closely monitored and modified. And in the 1990s, when new findings revealed fiberglass-reinforced plastic shells to be less suitable for the environment, Herman Miller explored sustainable solutions and, in 2000, reintroduced the design in 100 percent recyclable polypropylene (shown below).

Now, in 2013, Herman Miller introduces the Eames Molded Wood Chair, a beautiful expression of this timeless design.

Today’s techniques cut wood veneer into small strips and then process them in a way that makes the wood flexible enough to mold into complex curves without splitting or popping. This allows the material to take on the authentic form of the timeless Eames design for the first time as a single wood shell.

Select from three veneers for the wood shell, including white ash, walnut, and santos palisander. Pair it with a choice of three classic bases: wire (often called the "Eiffel Tower") in chrome or black, 4-leg in chrome or black, or wood dowel in one of three finishes.

The Eames Molded Wood Chair’s range of finish and base options allows for 21 different combinations of this new seating—giving you the opportunity to mix and match a unique look for almost any environment.

A beautiful expression in of the timeless design, the Eames Molded Wood Chair honors the organic shapes, sleek lines, and honest materials of Charles and Ray’s classic work—and represents Herman Miller’s longstanding commitment to the Eames vision of continued exploration.

Lightweight and carefully contoured, the shell seats have high, flexible backs, deep seat pockets, and waterfall front edges so you can sit comfortably.

Swiveling glides keep the chair steady and level on uneven floors. The standard glide is also available with felt to protect hard-surface floors.

Learn more here and look for it to be available soon in the Herman Miller Stores.
