PAIR OF HANNAH MORRISON FOR KNOLL ALUMINUM LOUNGE CHAIRS
With original upholstery and labels, Knoll International circa 1978
Item # 705KSY20P
This pair of vintage sling chairs is relatively hard to find on the market, particularly in the polished aluminum finish. Designed by Andrew Morrison and Bruce Hannah for Knoll International with inspiration found in the masts of sailing boats, this pair was produced and sold in 1978. The incredibly high quality of metal work is typical of Knoll, the bent tube polished beautifully and high quality custom hex screws locking the medial brace into the frame perfectly. Neither chair must be reupholstered, though we would personally prefer these in a new fabric in light of the minor stains and discolorations - they are inordinately comfortable and perfectly conform to your body when sitting in them. With a gorgeous profile and an angularity that allows interesting views from any perspective, they are an excellent strikepoint piece for the modern interior.
Measurements: 28 3/4” W x 34 3/4” D x 34 3/4” H, 15 1/4" H to seat
Original upholstery with some small stains and discolorations; very comfortable and supportive. Polished aluminum with some light wear and tarnish as expected. Missing a few of the small plastic floor glides.
