Sun Flower Chair

Manufactured by IPL (L’Industrie Provinciale), St. Damien, PQ.

This is another great creation from the IPL factory in Quebec. Following the enormous success of the Solair chairs, the company produced a second model for Eaton’s and other Canadian retailers. The formula was the same, a single injection molded chair with a cold bent metal rod frame that followed a similar design and colour palette as the Solair. The radiant circular pattern must have been a bitch to produce and this difficulty resulted in low production numbers. In so much, these pieces have become scary rare, with only a handful surviving the reality of outdoor furniture in Canada. I have had a hard time finding any background on this piece and invite contributors to have a go at fleshing out the story. -Todd Falkowsky
