Just about everything posted looks like it came out of a classroom. To each his own.

I have newer regretted anything more. Every time I hear or see anything about or from Wegner I go "DAAANG"! Well, beside this, the construction of "The Chair"is über cool. But actually, to begin with he did not like it himself, hence this: I kinda like both. His swivel chair is similar BTW - and it is probably one of the best looking swivel chairs ever made. As a side note - compare "The Chair" and his swivel chairs construction with his "Cowhorn chair" (which als is great dinig chairs) - As said, he could really do amazing things with wood.

Which seems opposite to the statement that these are not chairs one can sit in for hours.

One of the nice things about the Panton chair is that its apparent bulk shift, depending on the angle. From the side, they nearly disappear. The curves under the seat, from both the front and read view are beautiful, but from head on, the back does look very bulky.

I lobbied for either the Arne Jacobsen Series 7 or Ant chairs (we already had two 7s), but one day he smurf chairs just showed up.

High-backed chairs are awful in every way thinkable.

The clear dichotomy in chair tastes here is pretty interesting.

Real question: why do so many seem to like thin, shiny, metal for the legs or pedestal?

LOL


They do look quite good as a set though I think.





They remind me of Fernando Botero's sculptures

for me, the less there is to the legs, the lower the chance of me banging my foot or calf or toe against it. You learn to adapt when you're a klutz. But its also a comfort thing, I like being able to move my legs around w/o interference from chunky chair legs.

I have these.
