Non Conformist Armchair

Designed by:  Eileen Gray
Manufactured by:  ClassiCon

It piques and provokes what one might expect of it, and yet it is inexplicably aesthetic and harmonious – a nonconformist on velvet paws. Eileen Gray commented quite pragmatically on her work in typical understatement: “An armrest was omitted in order to leave the body more freedom in movement and to allow it to bend forward or to turn to the other side unrestricted.” Seldom was a ‘nonconformist’ more ready to talk. Frame of chrome-plated steel tubing. Seat of beech frame with rubber webbing. Upholstery is polyurethane with polyester filling. Cover in leather. Price includes shipping to the USA. Manufactured by ClassiCon.

Designed in 1926.
22.4" W, 24.8" D, 30.7" H
Seat Height 17.7"

$4,988 - $6,525

Classicon

Classicon, a clever portmanteau deriving from the words “classic” and “contemporary,” perfectly fuses the range of designs produced by this German manufacturer. Founded in 1990, ClassiCon holds the worldwide license to produce Eileen Gray’s iconic range of designs from the 20th century. Before her death in 1973, Gray collaborated with London’s Aram Designs to issue many of her furnishings as production pieces – lounge chairs, sofas, side tables, dining tables, screens, and rugs. ClassiCon is the only licensed manufacturer of Eileen Gray’s designs. In addition to its meticulous production of her furnishings from the 1920s and 1930s, ClassiCon collaborates with a number of contemporary designers like Konstantin Grcic, Jader Alme ida, Nina Mair, Sauerbruch Hutton, Edward Barber + Jay Osgerby, Neri & Hu, Sebastian Herkner, to create new pieces. All ClassicCon pieces are presented as part of an edition where each example is both stamped and numbered. Switch Modern presents a cohesive ClassiCon range that encompasses nearly 100 years of important design.
