Product description

Originally designed for the Lovell Health House in 1929, this version of Easy Chair only existed as a drawing until recently. Unlike the plywood frame version, it has the dynamic steel frame envisaged by the architect in a sketch now kept at the Ucla Archive. While reminiscent of Bauhaus furniture, the organic solid oak armrests lend it a comfort and solidity all of its own. The ottoman complements the chair perfectly to form a distinctive ensemble that has the potential to become a modern classic.
