An early Verner Panton S-chair in glossy white for Herman Miller. What was to become heralded as the first single piece molded chair, the S-chair was actually based on an earlier design by Poul Kjaerholm, which was prototyped in wire and papier-mache in 1953. This example is from the 6th year of production, with a date stamp of 1973.
A pair of rare Nipigon chairs by Dutch designer Jan Kuypers. Crafted from solid birch, this design featured molded plywood panels and legs angled like the points of a compass, a theme prevalent among many designs of the time, including works by Jean Prouve, Pierre Jeanneret, Friso Kramer, and Allan Gould.
A lyrical French Modernist Fleur-de-Lis arm chair.
A sculptural leather and teak lounge chair attributed to Arne Hovmand-Olsen. The bottom photo is of Havmand-Olsen's Model 240 lounge chair for Mogens Kold, published in Mobilia 1958.
Several 1960s production Charles + Ray Eames cream fiberglass side shell chairs for Herman Miller.
Via Modern Love, with many more great finds to come.
