Rare Mystery Cantilever Chair – Design Icons 2024 – 05

Cocoon Collectables had sold the first chair. The Pair was sold by Studio Tout, who indicated it being a chair manufactured by Gavi?
Design Market sold four of them. Compared with for instance the Cesca Chair it is a clever inverted cantilever design. I just wonder if it doesn’t lean to the front and you slide out of it when you put your weight in it.

Lamp Chair by Richard Hutten? (solved) Pof 1 Chair

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: -1

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…

Like a print or a painting you can hang these “Chairs” from a wall. They come in 3 variants: Chair, Sofa and stool. They were featured at Milan 2013. To seat you have to take them down and have them leaning against a wall.

YOY [jˈɔɪ] is a Tokyo based design studio composed by Naoki Ono, a spatial designer, and Yuki Yamamoto, a product designer. Started in 2011, their design theme is to create a new story between space and objects.
