IT’S A CLASSIC

March 31, 2017

Iconic modern design is at the core of SUITE NY’s DNA. This week, we celebrate the works of some of the most influential designers from that period: Poul Kjaerholm, Arne Jacobsen, Kaare Klint and Hans J. Wegner.
EGG™ CHAIR
Arne Jacobsen, 1958
Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg™ for the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen and it is certainly one of the triumphs of his work there. From now until August 2017, when you purchase an Egg™ Chair, you will receive a complimentary footstool!
EASY CHAIR
Hans J. Wegner, 1950
Hans J. Wegner’s CH25 Easy Chair is the only Wegner chair available with a papercord seat and back. Skilled weavers used over 400 meters of papercord to create this iconic chair’s distinctive pattern.
SAFARI CHAIR
Kaare Klint, 1933
The world’s first “build-it-yourself” piece of furniture, the Safari Chair ships fully assembled, but can be assembled and dissembled without using any tools. Inspired by a British officers chair Kaare Klint had seen in a travel guide for Africa, it is a classic example of authentic campaign furniture.
PK24™
Poul Kjaerholm, 1968
The PK24™ chaise lounge chair is one of Poul Kjaerholm’s most recognizable works. Inspiration for the simple curves and organic shape come from the Rococo period and the French “long chair” that featured a similar silhouette. This chair is a prime example of Kjaerholm’s design principals; using independent elements to create a whole.
PK11™
Poul Kjaerholm, 1957
Of all Poul Kjaerholm’s designs, the PK11™ (shown here with the PK51™) celebrates contrasting materials to a maximum. The light, strong steel is used for the frame construction while warm, organic materials are used for direct contact with the user. The chair is strikingly crisp from every angle.
