Tolix Model A
If you’re a frequent cafe-hopper, this chair won’t be unfamiliar to you. The Tolix Model A chair has been copied and remade countless times, but the original still stands with the best quality and material. The original Tolix Model A chair is an icon of industrial aesthetics. Its unequalled lightness and sturdiness is attributed to it being crafted from sheet metal, which makes it suitable for both commercial and outdoor use.
Being clean and simple, the comfortable Tulip Chair is a great addition to any modern home. When the Tulip chair was produced by Knoll in 1955 as part of designer Eero Saarinen’s Pedestal series, it was considered a symbol if futuristic design. It was also so “space age” that a slightly modified version became a fixture in the famous Untied States TV series Star Trek during the 1960s. This collection is Saarinen’s last furniture series.

The La Marie (made by Kartell) was introduced in 1998, and is the world’s first completely transparent chair made from a single polycarbonate mould. It looks almost weightless, but is extraordinarily strong and durable, and is resistant to bumps and scratches. Besides the transparent version, the La Marie also comes in four different shades: violet, light yellow, pinky orange, and light orange. It is stackable (up to seven chairs) and is also easy to clean.
If you’re looking for a modern-day twist on one of the most classic Chinese chair designs, this might be it. The Wishbone Chair is a great reinterpretation of the classic Chinese Ming Chair. Its simple yet evergreen design allows it to slip into any home setting, whether you are going for simple earthy interiors, or vibrant colourful spaces. Despite its forthright appearance, the Wishbone Chair is constructed quite meticulously, as the steam-bent solid wood frames require profound knowledge on wood joinery. The seat itself also requires hours of weaving. The beautiful blend of the chair’s sleek, flawless lines and timeless look makes it versatile and appropriate for any setting.
