One of my readers asked me to help her identify this mystery chair a couple of which she’s owned for over 30 years and sent me these photo’s.
Can you help identify these chairs?
I’m giving you details of these photo’s so that you can see it is not a swivel chair and has a peculiar nut and bold connection of the legs with the central rod.
Also the way the canvas or leather seating is connected with the legs is typical and nifty.
I like the design and have a feeling they are really comfy to lounge in.
Update October 20, 2010
Oops! I should have updated this post much earlier.
The question was posed and solved within 24 hours by Brian fireman. Thanks Brian!
This is the Steel edition of the Falcon Chair by Sigurd Ressell.
Other links to the Falcon as per the comments below:

Unfortunately I’ve lost Brian’s original comment in a server transition…

The mystery chair is a design by the late Danish designer Sigurd Ressell. His low-back arm-chair was a big inspiration for my Swallowtail chair which you posted a few months back.
Take care – Brian Fireman
Thank you very much for this tip!
Never seen such quick answer on a request:-)
A bit of Googling on Sigurd Resell gives these results:
1st Dibs has some of these chairs listed… as well as a beautiful low-back armchair by Sigurd Ressell.
Thanks again Brian!
