About

Art Deco Dynamique Creations set of four side chairs Johnson Furniture Co. David Robertson Smith Important Art Deco Dynamique Creations set of four side chairs for Johnson Handley Johnson. Design by David Robertson Smith for Johnson Furniture Co., circa 1929. Elegant tapered legs and skyscraper backs. Likely restored at some point, in leather and lacquered wood. See Machine Icon dealer listings for additional pieces from this line. The Dynamique line for Johnson Brothers was an important leap in modernist American furniture. Supreme designs and construction, well beyond the earliest contemporary designs from Paul Frankl, KEM Weber, Gilbert Rohde & Donald Deskey. David Robertson Smith, former head designer of Stickley Brothers arts and crafts lines, led Johnson into the production of Art Deco and modern lines in 1928. The company later claimed that this was the first complete line of “modern” furniture produced in the United States. The 1928 introduction of the Art Deco “Dynamique” line by D. Robertson Smith, with its exotic wood veneers and forms reminiscent of Frankl’s “skyscraper” bookcases, began a long period in which the company concurrently produced both modern and revival lines.
