Eric Pfeiffer aims to explore “the design of everyday objects in our lives”.
Pfeiffer’s Magazine Table (2000; Mag Table) is a sleek, sensuous table with a modified S-curve form made from bent plywood, which further accentuates its inviting warmth. Aesthetically-pleasing form aside, the designer’s love of functionality can be seen in the dual use of the hybrid table. As a side table it holds magazines prettily in its curved fold and affords table space or even an impromptu seat. Flip it and it becomes a nifty laptop stand. Its small footprint and classic design make it appropriate for many settings.
The table shown above is a replica.
Illustrious Norwegian interior designer Fredrik Kayser’s Model 711 (1960; Emerson Sofa in various armchair or seater options) stands out amongst his body of award-winning work and has retained its light, timeless looks over the years, fitting in both traditional and contemporary decors.
Charles and Ray Eames' Molded Plastic Chairs (1948-1950) were the first plastic chairs to be industrially manufactured, including the Desmond Chair, the Rada Armchair and the Maja Rocking Chair with its uncovered, cup-like seats and iconic wood and wire rocker bases.
