Ward Bennett Bumper Office Chair in Houndstooth Brickel Associates


The Ward Bennett 1964 designed bumper desk chair, here reupholstered in a neutral beige Houndstooth fabric. This early Brickel Associates Bumper is a true bucket chair, with a design based on principles of the George Washington swivel chair: a short seat, a nice sweep and good back support. “Chairs should be short in the seat,” Ward Bennett stated, “because then the feet rest on the floor and pressure is removed.” Like other Bennett designs, comfort is achieved in a simple, nearly seam-free design. The arm cap is shaped from one continuous piece of fabric, as are the inner and outer shells. Here with an early chrome four star base with Shepherd Profile casters. Measurements: 27 inches wide xx 27 inches deep x 33 inch high back, seat at 18 inches.
