Warren McArthur Art Deco Machine Age Aluminum Armchair, 1940s

About

A rare Art Deco Machine Age aluminum armchair by important American designer Warren McArthur. Displays McArthur’s signature Streamline Moderne-meets-Machine Age aesthetic, with a painstakingly crafted multi-piece anodized aluminum tubular frame over an intricate skeleton of steel support rods. Newer grey felt upholstery. On black rubber puck feet. The son of a successful Chicago businessman for whom Frank Lloyd Wright created one of his first “moonlight houses”, Warren McArthur’s (b. 1885–1961) quintessentially American career included designing furniture for his architect brother Albert’s opulent Arizona Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix, designing and patenting the first RV (dubbed the Wonderbus), and designing and producing lightweight seats for bombers during World War II.
