Hans Wegner and chair “Papa Bear”

Danish designer Hans Wegner created the highest comfort with the ‘Papa Bear’ seat in 1954. Over time, when designers were asked what the most comfortable chairs were that they had  sat down on, Hans Wegner’s design won hands down. The depth of the seat and angle of the chair is ideal, constructed with opulent padding that cradles like a cuddle.

Verner Panton and “Stacking Chairs”

As a pioneer of Danish designers, Verner Panton designed the first single-form chair made from plastic in the 1960s that could be easily stacked. Far from purely functional, it looks great too and can be easily put into any room for any purpose. That is the best example of the best swinging sixties culture.

Warren Platner and “Arm Chair”

In 1966 in the US, Platner began working on designs based on Louis XIV-style chairs. The difference is, this chair will be made with modern materials. The result is a chair that is light, complex and elegant with intricate welding, making it very expensive to buy. Each chair contains over a thousand individual welds. Platner’s design was showcased at the Windows on the World restaurant on the 107th floor of the World Trade Centre in New York.

Eero Saarinen and chair “Tulip”

Saarinen had a personal dislike of ‘ugly’ chair legs, so caused a revolution when he launched a one material, single-form chair in 1955. The chair no longer needed four legs. The design is smooth, smooth and as beautiful as tulips.

Arne Jacobsen and chair “Egg”

During the latter part of the 1950s in Denmark, Jacobsen designed a chair exclusively for the SAS Royal Hotel, Copenhagen. It was designed to be a fluid, encasing, fun-filled and sexy offering, totally unique from traditional chairs and has since become a pop culture icon from the mid-20th century. It is a privacy cocoon or chair to entertain. Whatever your mood, the egg chair has it all.
