Sling Club Chair in Solid Walnut, Bronze and Leather Designed by Craig Bassam

$11,460per item

About

A club chair anchors a living space and gives it personality. Seen from across a room, it invites relaxation, contemplation, and introspection while setting the mood. The Sling chair from BassamFellows occupies a rare position in the club chair typology. It’s august without being imposing, a dichotomy that inspired designer Craig Bassam throughout his design process. The design vocabulary of the Sling chair is analogous to BassamFellows’ Wood Frame series: a seat engineered for comfort is suspended in a cubic frame, with a reclining back pitched to an angle that allows for both engagement and repose. BassamFellows pushes the structural boundaries in its designs while elevating design details to rarefied moments that quietly radiate true craftsmanship. The Sling chair exemplifies this balance by pairing exceptionally soft and noble leather cushioning with a lithesome four-post wood and steel structure. Nano ceramic-coated steel tubes form a structural cage that supports a sling hammock of stitched leather straps anchored at the chair’s top rail and seat deck. Natural grain aniline leather cushioning is suspended in the sling, generously comforting the sitter. The seat and back cushion folds over the front apron and backrest with a custom-pleated stitch to fit snugly within the chair’s frame. The back cushioning is cleverly coupled to the chair’s tubular steel cross rails with low-slung leather belting ensuring it will retain its form over years of use. Further comfort is achieved with feather and down cushions. Similarly, the chair’s tubular steel arms are sumptuously draped with leather side cushions that are secured to the frame with leather belting, subtly emphasizing the contrast between the minimal structure and more voluminous proportions of the cushions. The result: composed comfort.

About the Maker

BassamFellows

For nearly 20 years, architect Craig Bassam and creative director Scott Fellows have been redefining American luxury with their own unique modernist philosophy of “Craftsman Modern.” Building on successful careers in luxury and design, they are responsible for a collection of furniture whose distinctive style matches the most elevated craftsmanship to architectural rigor and sensual minimalism. They create aspirational products that will last generations for real, modern lives. From the outset, Bassam and Fellows had a unique idea of what a lifestyle brand could be. They aspired to an intelligent lifestyle vision. Their work would be inspired by early modernism and its appreciation for the natural environment, and be infused with the resonance of classic craftsmanship. Their work would also, crucially, be built to last – it would be an artful riposte to and rejection of the disposable nature of what architect and writer George Nelson described as “Kleenex culture”. This clarity of vision manifested itself in the company’s first collection, which debuted at the 2003 Salone del Mobile in Milan. The pieces included the seminal solid timber Tractor Stool, a contemporized version of an old Swiss tractor seat. The finished piece artfully married two disparate aesthetics: the rigorous authority of architecture and the honest, humanistic character of the handmade.
