Dimensions- 770 h x 630 w x 710 d mm 400 h x 600 w x 500 d mm seat
Design/ origin- A rare original. Not often seen in Australia, this is an iconic piece of furniture design from one of the World's most known and recognisable designers/ manufacturers Florence Knoll for Knoll Associates / International.
The Parallel Bar System lounge chair was produced for America's booming mid century post-war industry & retail. Chairs such as these were to be placed within lobbies, waiting areas for major trading companies. F.Knoll designed all of the interiors contents for Knoll Associates offices and showrooms. These were to be cutting edge spaces as a way to advertise the company's abilities as a leading interiors company.
The chair is in two parts, the cushioned seat and the steel frame. The two contrasting materials work harmoniously together to create a durable and attractive looking design.
Condition- Recently reupholstered in a quality textured vinyl upholstery. Deep buttoning makes for a firm seat. Steel frame polished, black painted areas have slight discolouration. There are some scratches on the front legs.
