Washington Skin™ Nylon Side Chair

from Knoll

washington skin™ nylon side chair

washington skin™ nylon side chair

Design David Adjaye, 2013
Injection molded, glass reinforced nylon, stainless steel
Made by Knoll

David Adjaye's cantilevered chairs establish a play between propping and balancing, so they are simultaneously functional and sculptural. The Washington Skin nylon chair is a colorful solid, while its inverted counterpoint, Washington Skeleton, is reduced to a fine geometric lattice sharing the same envelope.

David Adjaye OBE is recognized as one of the leading architects of his generation. Adjaye was born in Tanzania to Ghanaian parents and his influences range from contemporary art, music and science to African art forms and the civic life of cities. In 1994 he set up his first office, where his ingenious use of materials and his sculptural ability established him as an architect with an artist's sensibility and vision.

The Washington Skin nylon chair is offered in seven colors. It features Injection-molded, glass-reinforced nylon. The shell and legs are cast in three parts and are connected using mortise and tenon joinery and stainless steel fasteners. The unique prop-leg design is reinforced internally with a cast aluminum brace that is over-molded with nylon. The designer's signature and the KnollStudio logo are located under the seat. Features integral glides that elevate and protect the leg profile. Not recommended for outdoor use.

18" w | 20.25" d | 32.5" h | seat: 17.5" h | 13lbs.

$482.00 + plus shipping in the continental U.S.

Hans Knoll, the son of a pioneer German furniture manufacturer, founded the Knoll company in New York City in 1938, one year after immigrating from Germany. He hired Florence Schust, a Cranbrook graduate who had worked for Gropius and Breuer, and the two were married in 1946. The next year, they opened a textiles division and showroom that was flanked with some of the worlds leading designers. Knoll would triumph thanks to impressive international contacts, gaining exclusive rights to the works of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and producing them to their original specifications. This included the 1929 Barcelona Chair. They also commissioned Eero Saarinen to design the now iconic Tulip chair, and hold the rights to Marcel Breuer’s seminal Wassily Chair. Artists such as Harry Bertoia, Jens Risom, and Isamu Noguchi would also collaborate with Knoll.
