Result Chair

Thursday 8 June 2017

Having long been an admirer of the Result Chair by Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld (see here, here ... and here) I was extremely interested to learn that HAY and furniture manufacturer Ahrend are collaborating with one another to reproduce this Dutch classic. The all new Result chair will stay true to its original construction and use of materials - thin steel-sheet bases with oak seat and backrest. 

Sounds good, really good, but give me an original any day.  Perhaps this green one which I spotted over on 1st Dibs ... please and thank you.

Geometry (noun) the branch of mathematics concerned with the properties and relations of points, lines, surfaces, solids and higher dimensional analogues.  Hmmmm, not too sure about higher dimensional analogues, but see above for some wonderful examples of mid-century modern geometry.

To find out more about this timber-clad house designed by architect John Floyd, head over to The Modern House.

Heavy on the concrete, easy on the words.  Something for the weekend in the form of MR House by Luciano Kruk Arquitectos.  Dreamy indeed.

Because I'm partial to a bit of oriented strand board.  I mean, who isn't?  I'm also partial to the shape of this compact two seater sofa and its tapered beech legs which complement the OSB beautifully.  The maker behind this piece, De Derriere Les Fagots, has created an array of simple, functional designs using a variety of materials including another favourite of mine ... plywood.  Go, see, tell me what you think ...

Avid readers of Midcentury will no doubt recognise this Blackheath townhouse from Issue 08, and I couldn't contain my delight when I spotted it up for sale on The Modern House a week or so ago.  Not that I'm in the market for a 'des res' south of the river, but it was such a joy to see even more wonderful images - and a floorplan - of what might just be one of my favourite homes.  Head over to The Modern House for more details on this Grade II-listed Span house, its history and architect Eric Lyons.

Oh, and I hate to disappoint, but this exceptional little house is now 'under offer'.  Hardly surprising.
