$7,795per item

About

The Alacran Chaise is an iconic, award-winning, mid-century piece by the American Bauhaus trained designer Michael van Beuren. Realized during his lifetime in Mexico, it was one of the winning designs of MoMA’s 1941 “Organic Design and Home Furnishing” Competition in New York. Available for both indoor and outdoor use, in either leather or nylon strapping and with two easily adjusted seating positions, the Alacrán is a truly remarkable and timeless design. Designed in Mexico, made in America.
