Set 4 Barrel Chair 606
In 1937 Wright was called by his friend Herbert Fisk Johnson to design the administrative headquarters of his company in Racine, Wisconsin. Here, in 1939, one of the most famous and futuristic buildings ever designed by Wright was inaugurated. The Johnson Building is a true masterpiece, and the company (which later became Johnson Wax) was justly proud of it. Johnson asked Wright to design also his private residence nearby. Wright called it “Wingspread House”; a central body from which four wings extend, one destined to parents, one to children, one to guests and one to servants (as in great manor houses). For this house Wright, adapted a barrel-shaped chair, designed in 1904 for the house of Darwin D. Martin in Buffalo, that he had also used in Taliesin House. This version is smaller and narrower than the first. American cherry wood frame. Seat padded with expanded polyurethane foam. Leather or fabric upholstery.
100% Made in Italy. Chair with curved back, in natural cherrywood, cherrywood stained walnut or stained black. Seat with polyurethane foam padding. Leather or fabric upholstery.
