Pair of "Double Waterfall" Lounging Chairs by Charles Hollis Jones

A$32,777.28per set

About

Pair of stunning lounge chairs in Lucite and stainless steel by famed designer, Charles Hollis Jones. The chairs are from the Double Waterfall collection manufactured in 2016. The Double Waterfall chair is part the Waterfall Line. The inspiration for the Waterfall line is drawn from the natural form of water falling, either from a waterfall or fountain. The concept behind it was to capture marriage, love, as well as the softness that is represented in the rest of Charles’ work. The waterfall coffee table which is stainless steel with Lucite edges, draws its form from the way waterfalls can sometimes be silver in the middle with clear on the edges. The entire line is put back in the oven a second time and then cooled, and this is done to remove any stress in the Lucite so that it retains its integrity for many years. Measurements: Width 25.25" Depth 37" Height 27" Arm height 21.25" Seat height 13.50" Seat depth 17.25" If you are coming to our show room to see a piece please call ahead of time due to our large inventory some items are available by appointment only.

About the Designer

Charles Hollis Jones

The now omnipresent design use of acrylic and Lucite owes much of its enduring popularity to seasoned creative Charles Hollis Jones. Nicknamed “Mr. Lucite,” the California-based furniture designer and artist made his reputation — and contributed to a lasting legacy for a material one might not immediately consider highbrow — with chairs, tables and other furnishings in the substance scientifically known as polymethyl methacrylate. But while the connecting thread through Jones’s body of work is the presence of translucent materials, his designs are anything but one-note.

The son of an Indiana carpenter, Jones has always been fascinated with structure and reinventing expected ones in new ways. He began working with furniture manufacturers while still a teenager and came to prominence in the 1960s and ’70s, researching and experimenting with techniques to shape acrylic into unconventional forms. “If I design a T-A-B-L-E without thinking of the name, then I can pretend I’ve never seen one,” he told PIN-UP magazine. His design combinations run the gamut from Lucite, brass and glass on elegant dining tables to more unusual applications of Lucite as legs for upholstered sofas and frames for Tibetan fur chairs.

Jones’s work is as varied as his client list, which has included Frank Sinatra, Sylvester Stallone and the Kardashians. For Tennessee Williams, he created a writing chair called the Wisteria chair. Jones also collaborated several times with modernist architect John Lautner, designing furniture that seemed to disappear into its surroundings.

He resides in Los Angeles, where he still designs today.
