Precisely the occasion of the centenary of the birth of George Nelson, Vitra signature honors, with a retrospective of his work and life, and especially with the reissue of one of his greatest works, the Pretzel Chair.
Its name is due to the bread of German origin, because his back appears to curve the same way as
the famous loaf intertwined their arms, but unlike bread, and only on this occasion, it has created only a limited edition of 1,000 pieces of this unit.
The value of this new edition is really high because the piece was taken off the market because the production techniques were not sufficient to provide an outlet for a very special object: plywood, their seemingly simple legs have a delicate effect to narrow down, and of course, since it was designed in 1952 has continued to be captivated by its lightness and elegance.
George Nelson is considered one of the most influential designers of the postwar U.S. and much of his pieces have now joined the growing list of classic modern furniture. Either way, we also investigated other areas such as clocks that highlight its expressive design, or the famous Coconut Chair.
In the retrospective, held at the Vitra Design Museum, not only limited to voice their most popular designs, but all that helps meet the artist in his time.
