LChairs permeate every corner of people’s lives. For most of them, the role of chairs is nothing more than a “seat”. However, for designers, it is the most subtle interpretation of life philosophy and aesthetics.

swan chair

The Swan chair was designed by the Danish architect and designer Jacobsen for the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1958. After many physical tests with real people, the radian and shape were constantly revised before mass production. The swan chair has smooth and graceful lines, and has a sculptural beauty. It is named after a quiet swan. The curvature of the back of the chair has been ergonomically calculated to just support the back, and the “wings” on both sides are armrests, which are not only elegant in shape, but also quite comfortable to sit on.

egg chair

The egg chair is another chair designed by Jacobsen for the SAS Royal Hotel. If you look closely, the lines of the egg chair and the swan chair are relatively close. The shape of the egg chair is like a broken eggshell, which makes people nest in it and does not want to come out, giving people a full sense of security. Egg chairs are generally used as leisure chairs. Many people also have a footrest. The high back of the chair surrounds the table to form a relatively independent space. It feels like hiding in a small building. It is generally cowhide, and there are relatively few cloth covers.

eames chair

The Eames chair is a classic dining chair designed by American designer Charles Eames and his wife Ray Eames (furniture designer) in 1956. The chair was once listed in the world’s best product design forest. The Charles Eames couple are also known as “the most influential designers of the 20th century”, and nearly 100 works are permanently collected by major museums. Inspired by the Eiffel Tower, the Eames chair is made of bent steel bars and formed plastics. Its beautiful shape, practical functions and cheap price make it very popular once it is launched. Today, due to the advancement of technology, the Eames chair has been reproduced again. The seat shell is made of environmentally friendly and recyclable polypropylene material, which not only makes it lighter in weight, but also has better heat resistance and chemical resistance.

There are many types of Eames chairs, from DSR, DAR to RAR, too many to remember. The pictures below are all Eames chairs.

navy chair

During World War II, Emeco received an order from the U.S. Navy to design a metal seat for submarines. Because the working environment of the submarine is very special, the seat is required to be not afraid of salt corrosion, and at the same time, it must be light and durable, and it is urgent. Emeco eventually teamed up with the Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA) to develop this chair (Navy Chair 1006), which was advertised as a chair that could withstand a torpedo attack. The whole chair needs 77 processes to complete, and then manually inspected, the purpose is to make a chair that will not be scrapped. It is said that its service life reaches 150 years.

In 2006, Coca-Cola and Emeco jointly developed the “Navy Chair 111” based on the “Navy Chair 1006” due to the need to create an environmentally friendly image. “Navy Chair 111” is made of recycled plastic bottles. Since a chair happens to need 111 Coca-Cola bottles to make, the model is designated as 111, which is quite interesting. The Navy Chair 111 is less durable, but lighter and more affordable.

Wiggle Chair Modeling Chair

The Wiggle Chair is a furniture design classic by renowned architect Frank Owen Gehry. Frank Owen Gehry, who is always challenging new materials, has a fish-like smooth agility and twisted shape as his registered trademark.

The 1960s saw a wave of design experimentation using cheap, lightweight materials. Frank Owen Gehry started by playing with the corrugated paper used in the architectural models at hand, glued and then cut to create this series of “Easy Edges” made of corrugated cardboard. The Wiggle Chair is named after its winding shape. The structure of the architectural sculpture is made of 60 layers of corrugated cardboard glued in different directions, and the final side is fixed with cardboard.

The designer has given a new aesthetic interpretation to the materials that can be seen everywhere in daily life. The seemingly simple design has strong and durable characteristics, and now it has also launched a multi-color colorful version.

The Air chair is the first chair in the world to use gas-assisted injection molding. This industrial process term is indeed difficult and obscure, but as long as you know that this is a breakthrough industrial process, it turns the original simple plastic chair into a more economical and more economical one. Multi-material, lighter, stronger and more durable plastic chairs.

The glass fiber added to the Air chair can withstand heavy use, and the hollow structure makes it lighter, even lighter than a schoolbag for elementary school students. The anti-UV and waterproof functions make it suitable for both indoors and outdoors, and it is only 7 cm when folded (25 cm for the armrest version), so it does not matter how narrow the space is against the wall.
