George Nelson Vintage DAF Swaged Leg Lounge Chair for Herman Miller.
This rare design was only in production for four years from 1958-1964.  Conceived by Charles Pollack in 1954 for Nelson, this chair may be the most organic form ever produced by the Nelson's design team.
The seat and back are constructed from fiberglass reinforced polyester which delivers the stiff, buoyant sit shared by the classic Eames fiberglass chairs-far superior to the inert soft plastic feel of current Herman Miller reproduction versions.  The more radical lounge chair pictured here has never been reproduced.
Despite it's delicate, complex appearance, chair is structurally resilient.  The back and seat are firmly attached to one another and the swaged legs firmly lock into place delivering rock solid support only enhanced by downward pressure.
The articulated back which floats away from seat provides airflow and comfort flex lacking in the Eames fiberglass chair family.
This example has a freshly re-chromed base.  The feet are hard nylon custom-fabricated glides built up to echo profile of original expansive vinyl feet.
The seat and back have been sanded, primered and then painted in ultra durable two part catalyzed auto paint.  The finish is wet-sanded by hand and polished for a deep wet look in a dolphin shade of light gray blue befitting it's porpoise like form.
This chair, much like the Eames chairs also produced by Herman Miller was rarely painted as were similar fiberglass chairs by Knoll.  We took liberty with the restoration as the fiberglass was irreparably stained.  The exuberant form of this chair-in our opinion-lends itself to a professional wet look gained from the same kind of paint applied to Bertoia's fiberglass chairs similarly finished for Knoll in the fifties.
The smooth finish also allows one to slide into the comfort zone and easily shift one's weight once settled in.
