Heller Bellini chair. Very simple and clean.

These pictures are from an exhibit of these chairs in New York, Design within Reach on W 14th street. The illustration department of Parsons asked selected students to transform the chair in any way they wanted to. This was mine - The spaghetti chair :p

Those chairs remind me of the ones we have at school. I'm sure the ones you posted are a bit nicer, of course. :p

Alexander Girard vintage chairs
Quote:
Girardís elaborate redesign of Braniff Airlines in 1965 inspired a Girard furniture group at Herman Miller in 1967, using many of the popular designs from Braniff VIP lounges, with different upholstery applications. Girard worked closely with both Eames and Nelson on a number of projects and is largely credited for bringing color to the Eames furniture, creating a full spectrum of covers for the Eames Naugahyde chairs. His own work with furniture design extended into his La Fonda del Sol and LíEtoile restaurants with dining tables and chairs. They exemplify his signature textiles, soft round corners, low sight line, and metal legs. These pieces had short lived distribution, and are unusual in todayís market.

^ Definitely from the 1960s. I'll be honest, they don't look too comfortable, but they are funky!

I love rocking chairs! We used to have one here at my house, and I remember it was passed down from my great-grandfather. I spent so many afternoons in that chair, reading biographies on Abraham Lincoln and rocking back and forth, back and forth.

The worst thing was when you rocked back and forth too fast and the entire chair fell over, though. Gosh, I hated when that happened.
