T-Chairs by Katavolos, Kelley & Littell for Laverne International, US, 1950s

About the Item

T-chairs by American trio of designers Katavolos, Kelley, and Littell in 1952 as part of the "New Furniture" collection for Laverne International. These chairs boast a delicate yet sturdy construction, featuring chrome-plated steel frames, enamelled steel accents, and sumptuous cognac camel leather seats. The iconic T-shaped design is characterized by curvaceous lines, creating an eye-catching silhouette. The leather seats seemingly floats atop the three-legged frame, adding a touch of modern flair to any dining space. Despite exhibiting signs of use, these chairs retain their allure and timeless design. Priced individually. William Katavolos, Douglas Kelley, and Ross Littell, graduates of The Pratt Institute in New York, embarked on a six-year collaboration in designing textiles, dinnerware and furniture at Laverne which was established in 1938. Their partnership would leave an indelible mark on the world of design. Among their illustrious creations, the T-chair emerged as a pinnacle of design excellence, earning its place in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. With its timeless appeal and innovative construction, the T-chair continues to captivate enthusiasts and collectors alike, serving as a testament to the enduring legacy of its visionary creators.
