Jesus Gasca Mode Kitchen Counter Stool Furniture


Jesus Gasca Mode Kitchen Counter Stool Furniture

DWR is pleased to present the latest refined and visionary design from Stua: the Onda Stool (2006). The work of Stua founder Jes¿s Gasca, the Onda Stool mimics the curves of the human body. By incorporating these wave-like shapes into his design, Gasca has created a seat that delivers a glove-like fit and lumbar support as it hugs the small of the back. The elegant solution employs an extra soft rubber "skin" over the swiveling seat shell, with both elements molded simultaneously for superior durability. Standing on a stainless steel frame, the Onda Stool is suitable for indoor and outdoor use, including limitless residential and commercial settings. The colors of the stool coordinate back to our Globus and Gas chair collections. As the exclusive Stua retail partner in the U.S., the Onda Stool is available at DWR only. Made in Spain.

Barcelona Couch w/ Black Straps - Volo Leather


Barcelona Couch w/ Black Straps - Volo Leather

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Couch (1930) was added to his Barcelona Collection in the year following the introduction of the Chair and Stool. Still produced to his original specifications, the couch gained widespread popularity in 1953, when architect Philp Johnson selected it for his New York apartment. The cushions -- welting and buttons included -- come from a single Spinneybeck¿ Volo cowhide and are supported by cowhide belting straps. To create the deep, precise tufting, individual panels of leather are cut, hand welted and hand tufted. The frame is made from African mahogany sapele hardwood, with stainless steel legs. The bolster cushion is crafted from coordinating leather and secured to the couch with straps and locking snaps. The Barcelona Couch is a registered trademark of Knoll, Inc., manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A.

Did you know? The Barcelona Couch was featured in an episode of the Ugly Betty show. This, in white, is actually Wilhelmina's couch.

Hi Back Freedom Chair Furniture


Hi Back Freedom Chair Furniture

Niels Diffrient's Freedom Chair (1999) was a breakthrough in ergonomic task seating. The Headrest version offers height-adjustable, customized support for the head, allowing for proper eye-level positioning when working long hours at a computer station. Often, ergonomic chairs are likely to be improperly positioned, resulting in the creation of more problems than they solve. The Freedom Chair is simpler than other chairs - a unique counterbalancing tilt mechanism self-adjusts according to the user’s weight and movement, thus eliminating the need for manual fixes. Any adjustments can be easily made while the user is seated for accurate positioning. The seat cushion provides excellent shock absorption and weight distribution for unmatched comfort. Made from a two-way stretch woven fabric, the seat cover is durable enough for contract applications. The Freedom Chair was awarded the 2002 National Design Award from the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt Museum. Made in U.S.A.

Mario Bellini Ultra Chair


Mario Bellini Ultra Chair

Mario Bellini has updated his versatile, low-cost Bellini Chair with a new material and super sleek finish. The updated model, called the Ultra Bellini Chair, is formed using a single piece of injection nylon, which is durable and ideally suited to the chair's sculptural lines. Wrapped in a rich high-gloss finish, the chair evokes comparisons with an Italian sports car and offers a high degree of comfort with a slightly flexible back. Like its polypropylene counterpart, the Ultra Bellini is stackable and suitable for commercial use. To maintain the sheen of the high-gloss finish, long-term outdoor use is not recommended. Made in Italy.

LC2 Petit Modele Armchair- Black Leather


LC2 Petit Modele Armchair- Black Leather

The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 collections as "cushion baskets" which they designed in 1928 as a modernist response to the traditional club chair. With cushions held in place without being tethered to the frame, the idea was to offer all the comfort of a padded surface while applying the elegant minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style. Following the example of the LC1 Sling Chair, these pieces reverse the standard structures of sofas and chairs by having frames that are externalized. The resulting aesthetic of the simple tubular structure is remarkably relevant to how we live today, three-quarters of a century later. Thick, resilient pillows rest within the frames and provide the kind of sumptuousness rarely found in even the finest overstuffed conventional chairs. The differences among the groups are that the LC2 is more compactly scaled, and the LC3 has down-wrapped cushions that create a softer look and feel. Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassina's Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina in Italy under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation.

Philip Starck Philippe Miss K Table Lamp

Philippe Starck's Miss K Table Lamp (2003) has fast become Flos Lighting's best-selling product for its functionality-based dual aesthetic. When unlit, the polycarbonate lampshade shows subtle detail with a dark metallic tint. When lit, the lamp appears almost like an x-ray, with the bulb starkly visible behind the now-clear illuminated shade. The fluid pedestal base of the lamp is clear at all times. An on-cord dimmer takes the light from 0-100% luminosity for an atmospheric glow to a reading-appropriate brightness. The lamp's compact scale is suited to small tables and busy worktops. Bulb (included): halogen 100W/120V/E26/T10. Made in Italy.
