About

A characterful metal club chair in the Streamline Moderne style, by the seminal American Industrial designer Norman Bel Geddes. Bel Geddes' obsession with aerodynamics is manifested even in his designs for objects which remain stationary in use. That a concern with movement and speed could be purely expressive -- that is, more symbolic than functional -- was a defining characteristic of the Streamline style. This is evident in Bel Geddes' chair, which is why the design seems so very much of its period.

In very good original condition.
