About

1970 Ward Bennett for Brickel Associates lounge chairs.

Simplicity and comfort were always Bennett's goals, and Bennett said he learned a great deal about lumbar support, the importance of chair arms, and designing the right "pitch" from working with the doctor who tread John F. Kennedy's bad back. His designs were always about the bare essence, nothing superfluous.
