Visually light, yet incredibly sturdy, the Grasshopper chair with its lean and angular lines, takes up little space with the eye. Yet, as a lounge chair the Grasshopper is an amazingly sturdy seat that provides lumbar support for your back, and a nice comfortable recline, to ease one into relaxation.
The Grasshopper chair and ottoman is based on Eero Saarinen’s chair of the same name, designed for Knoll in 1946. The Grasshopper is the first chair Saarinen designed in a series of sculptural chairs created for Knoll throughout the 1940s and 1950s. Knoll manufactured the chair and ottoman for nineteen-years, and ended its production in 1965.
Since 1989, Modernica has proven itself with its steadfast commitment to authenticity and craftsmanship. Being at the forefront of rediscovering and relaunching out-of-production pieces, Modernica has revitalized designs that previously were only available to a select few. In 1995, Modernica reengineered the Grasshopper chair and ottoman, improving upon its durability, thus making this chair available and affordable for the home and office.
The superior craftsmanship and the significance of the design make Modernica’s Grasshopper chair and ottoman an essential classic. The Grasshopper chair and ottoman is offered in 30 fabric and leather choices, and in three wood finishes.
