A stunning and stylish Iconic vintage X framed Falcon Chair. The Falcon Chair was designed in the 1970’s by the Norwegian designer Sigurd Ressell for Vatne Mobler. This hammock style floating chair has become a design classic. Ultra comfortable, the chair has a powder coated chrome frame with a black aniline leather cushion that sits on its canvas sling. This is a very rare and sought-after version, the vast majority of these chairs having been made with wooden frames.
Norwegian interior and industrial designer Sigurd Ressell was particularly active during the 1950s and ‘60s and is best known for his collaboration with Vatne Møbler, which resulted in the iconic Falcon Chair. In 1968, Ressell became the chief designer for Norwegian furniture company Vatne, and his seminal Falcon Chair (1970) soon followed. Originally named Blank Vals, the hammock-like chair was the result of a furniture competition for the Industry Council. Vatne began production of the chair in 1971 under the new name. Within two years, Vatne’s sales tripled as Falcon Chairs sold worldwide, particularly in the United States, Japan, Germany, and Australia.
Chair shows a lovely level of wear and requires new buttons for the seat pad.
