Anybody an idea of this bench’s provenance?
A friend bought this chair as a limited edition by Richard Hutten. I’ve looked around but didn’t find any reference…..
I’m glad I have so many dear readers who occasionally help me out.
Dear Guido, The so-called Lamp Chair on your blog this week is not by Richard Hutten himself, but has something to do with him. The chair was brought to market by Hidden at the time, a Dutch label in which Richard Hutten was closely involved. In any case, Hutten designed a number of furniture for Hidden, but if I am not mistaken, he was also the founder / owner of this label.
The chair in question is called ‘POF 1’, was designed in 1997 by the Swiss design collective N2 and is an adaptation of a classic model by the also Swiss manufacturer HorgenGlarus. At N2, at least Jörg Boner and Christian Deuber were involved. Below are a few useful links:
Hopefully I have answered your question about this chair for the most important part.
Kind regards, P v D
I kind of guessed already it was a Horgen Chair, but hesitated as I didn’t know of a connection between Richard and Horgenglarus…
A nice one. Pinned. Unfortunately no provenance.
Found it via missennah:
crazy ass chair!
Without further indication of its provenance.
And of this nice set of 4 Cantilever Tubular Chairs nobody atseems to know the designer or pedigree. Therefore one seems to be able to pick them up for a nickle or a dime as the estimate is Euro 200 – 300…
Update: Sold for Euro 260. I would have loved to have these chairs and reupholster them with real leather….
