Chair #53

—Designed by René Holten

Picture dozens of these chairs covered in crisp white in a posh European hotel lobby... or covered in lime green and scattered around tables in a swanky New York bar. Trés cool. Sculpted elegance in a compact form, the Hanna Chair is as comfortable to sit on as it is beautiful to look at. Perched on three slightly tapered steel legs, the robust shell hovers just above the floor. A René Holten signature, this chair is sure to make a striking statement in your home or office. Available in several fabric and leather upholstery options, it's up to you if you want to keep it simple or jazz it up with one a bold colors or pattern.

René Holten was born in The Netherlands in 1961. Same age as me, by the way. He studied Architectural Design at the Academy of Arts in Maastricht, The Netherlands and eventually worked his way into furniture and industrial design. And he’s very environmentally conscious.
