Lobster Chair

When designers Oluf Lund and Eva Paarmann were in need of inspiration for a re-working of the classic lounge chair design, they looked to the ocean. Their Lobster and Shelly chairs, based on the exoskeletal forms of lobster and crayfish respectively, are beautiful treatments of that which is naturally influenced. And just as in nature, this creature feature works to support and protect by way of sculptured construction. Produced exclusively in Denmark, Lobster and Shelly are fashioned from a moulded beech shell with a choice of walnut, oak or Aniline veneers. Each comes with a chrome plated steel base so you can sit and spin. A Lobster footrest is also available.

This appeared on PadStyle a while ago and I bookmarked it in Google Reader and then forgot I was intending to post it. I'm rather taken by deco influenced modern pieces, though I think it's a style thats probably best used in moderation unless you own a genuine deco property.

The Deco Office Chair by Sitcom Furniture is constructed from solid hardwood with birch veneers and a java finish, and features a high-density sand fabric cushion.

The chair is available from nikkoshops for $299

Ovalia By Henrik Thor-Larson

Like many egg-based chair designs, the Ovalia by Henrik Thor-Larson is a vintage classic. However, this is one vintage classic returning for a revamped re-release and a piece of design history available to buy now on limited supply. Debuting to immediate success at the Scandinavian Furniture Fair in 1968, this covetable ovum stayed on sale for a decade, but has now, with a few improvements, been relaunched in its original style for a new generation of egg-chair fanatics.

Petal By Damian Barton

Damian Barton is an America-based, Australian designer with an industrial and furniture design heritage who has garnered recognition through his form-friendly and functional pieces. Petal takes more than titular inspiration from nature, winding its floral form within a natural wood finish. However, upholding his stance to work with an array of materials and in keeping with the current trend for all things metallic, you can choose to put Petal to the metal with Aluminium Petal (as seen here,) if you'd prefer.

Terminal 1

French designer, Jean Marie Massaud, works with a contextual approach to industrial and furniture design. The Terminal 1 daybed is a single unit which forms part of his ethic for individualistic focus and creates, with its sweeping, fluid form, a welcome station for repose. Its shape supports a double function as both an arm chair and chaise longue, and there is further room for manoeuvre within materials and finishes (shown here is a plastic body on a matt-finish metal frame.)

Round Swivelling Tub Chair From Dwell

If like me you are a fan of sixties cool and like to add just a touch of it to your home, the Round Swivelling Tub Chair from Dwell is a great way to give a nod back to the future, embracing the optimism of that decade's designers. With it's ABS plastic outer, faux leather inner and chrome base the chair comes in at a more than reasonable price point. Personally I am rather taken by the white shown above, but there's also a black option for those wanting something a little more understated. You could even buy both and add them to a swinging monochrome lair.

Alaska Steel Chair

The "Alaska" is a Polished Stainless Steel Armchair designed by Emilio Nanni. You are probably going to need an ultra contemporary home to get away with owning this. It makes me think of something Baltar from the 1970's Battlestar Galactica would have sat in, as there's a definite old school Cylon atheistic to it. Still if you do have a space that's uber contemporary then this is a fantastic looking chair to put in it.
