Dan Johnson"Viscount" Chair

About the Item

Often incorrectly attributed to Danish designer Ib Kofod-Larsen, these elegant chairs are an early design by American architect Dan Johnson. They were produced and distributed by Selig in the US. Like his famous Gazelle chair, this design is light, lean, and elegant. A slender brass rod wraps around the seat back and attaches to the tops of the tapering front legs. 27.75"h X 21"w X 20"d seat:18"
