Black Leather Lounge Chairs, Vintage Midcentury by Rodney Kinsman for OMK

About

Vintage late midcentury black leather T1 sling lounge chairs by Rodney Kinsman for OMK. Kinsman trained at the Central School of Art and in 1966 founded OMK furniture with partners Jurek Olejnik and Bryan Morrison in 1966, the company name being based on each of the initials of their surnames. OMK were a key designer and manufacturer that lead the way in the High-Tech design movement that expanded the popularity of midcentury and 20th century British design throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Kinsman designed a number of pieces of furniture that have become icons of the time and worked most notably with Italian design house Bieffeplast in constructing a range of furniture and shelving in epoxy resin coated metal. His chrome T1 sling lounge chair very much echoed OMK’s design ethos at the time of creating designs based on technical conception. Originally produced in 1967 and sold through Sir Terence Conran’s Habitat stores it became an instant success and over the last 5 years, highly collectable. This pair of chairs are both in overall good vintage condition. There are some marks to the seats and some cracking of the leather where it folds over along the top edge of the seat back as is usual with these chairs - in both cases this is superficial wear and does not affect the structural integrity of the sling. All as you would expect given their age and nothing major to speak of, and no rust or flaking of the chrome. They’re comfortable to sit in and the low slung Minimalist design concept of their form means they fit within both a contemporary and vintage setting.
