Norman Bel Geddes Easy Chair
The Norman Bel Geddes Easy Chair made of fabric and beech was produced in the United States, 1949 and designed by the American industrial designer Norman Bel Geddes (1893-1958). In his book ‘Horizons’ (1932) he describes his design philosophy of Streamlining which resulted in the eponymous design style of the 1930s.
These slipper chairs are a wonderful example of his style executed in furniture design. The thick seats and backrests are teardrop-shaped, a form he believed was superior. Resting on four tapered, conical legs. The design is simplistic with sharp lines.
