Grasshopper Chair and Ottoman in New Zealand Sheepskin - FORSYTH

Grasshopper Chair and Ottoman in New Zealand Sheepskin

$8,200

Description

This original Grasshopper chair and ottoman was designed for Knoll in 1946 by Eero Saarinen.  The Grasshopper is the first chair Saarinen designed in a series of sculptural chairs created for Knoll throughout the 1940s and 1950s.  Knoll manufactured the chair and ottoman for nineteen-years and ended its production in 1965. Visually light, yet incredibly sturdy, the Grasshopper chair with its lean and angular lines, takes up little space with the eye. Yet, as a lounge chair the Grasshopper is an amazingly sturdy seat that provides lumbar support for your back, and a nice comfortable recline, to ease one into relaxation.  Masterfully restored and reupholstered in a cool and neutral tan New Zealand sheepskin.
