old chair, new chair.

a few weeks ago i had the pleasure of photographing a new chair.

well, it's an old chair i suppose. a reissue of a robin day chair, designed in 1952.

i think it's simply called the 'robin day reclining chair'

here it is... or rather here are my photos of the prototype of the reissued chair
it's maybe hard to tell from my photos but this is a beauty.
apart from being comfortable i really like the style of it... a little bit jetsons perhaps ?

the adjustable headrest is a nice touch
oh and the chair can be upholstered in a wide variety of fabrics. harris tweed anybody ?
( no ? just me then )

the armrests are probably my favourite part
they are wide enough to fit a kebab on one side
and a pint of beer and the tv remote on the other.

i think these launch at london design week towards the end of september.
hmmm... i wonder how much they cost ?
