Despite its straightforward name, the Adjustable Table E1027 is nothing short of impressive. Its cantilevered design and clean lines gives an illusion of weightlessness and also allows the table top to easily hover over any seating area, making it both functional and aesthetically pleasing. With its adjustable height, it can also fit seamlessly into any setting throughout the house.
The lounge chair is one of the most notable pieces by Charles and Ray Eames, who are widely lauded for their contributions to Mid-century modern style. Created using curved moulded plywood and soft leather, the seat was made to fit seamlessly into not only high-class offices but also the average living room. Tilted at an angle, it takes the weight off your body and allows you to sink into the plush leather after a long day.
Described by designer and sculptor Isamu Noguchi as his best furniture piece, the Noguchi table embodies simplicity but is also known for its very distinctive form. It is made of three main parts – freeform glass and two elegant curved wooden pieces. Although the glass seems precariously balanced on top, the interlocking 2-part base and configuration provides sturdy support, making it a perfect balancing act.
With Eero Saarinen’s aspiration of creating a chair that achieved comfort through the shape of its shell rather than the depth of its cushioning, the womb chair was born. Its clean curved lines and large frame provides a sense of security and immediately attracts one to curl up into its semi-engulfing form. By using cutting-edge production techniques of that time, Eero created a shell that helps facilitate a relaxed sitting posture and has also made this chair a one of a kind statement piece.
Nelson Platform Bench
Often cited as one of the first noteworthy Mid-century modern furniture designs, the Nelson Platform Bench has a simple design but is extremely versatile. It can be used as a table, bench or even a platform base depending on your needs. The clean-cut lines, choice of material and design makes this a classic and modern piece that is easy to integrate into any room.
Arco Floor Lamp
Not much can shine a light like the Arco Lamp can. First introduced in 1962, the lamp has become a modern icon for its unique design. With a lampshade supported by an “arc” that bends acrobatically forward at least two metres away from its base, the lamp casts an overhead light without getting in the way. Made of metal and marble, it is also adjustable for exact lighting control and has a hole in its base, which makes it easier to move.
