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.
The Panton Chair (1957-1967; S Chair) by experimental Danish designer Verner Panton is part of the Danish Culture Canon and has withstood the vicissitudes of popularity over time, in part thanks to supermodel Kate Moss who posed nude on it on the cover of British Vogue.
