Grant Featherston

Grant Featherston

Grant Featherston was an Australian self-taught designer whose works show the influence of the international Arts and Crafts movement which advocated traditional craftsmanship as well as the Bauhaus “less is more” movement that espoused minimalism.

Featherston’s Contour Chair (1951; Lynelle Lounge Chair) is an Australian design icon. It is reminiscent of Hans Wegner’s distinctive Papa Bear Chair and reflects organic shapes observed in nature. The Contour Chair has a seat that cradles the body and wooden tapered legs, making it an easy choice of a lounge chair in all settings. It was a fresh design that received attention when it was introduced during the post-war period.

The lounge chair shown above is a replica.
