Design Within Reach Furniture

Treat yourself (or someone you’re fond of) to Handcrafted Modern, an intimate collection of photographs of astonishingly beautiful, iconic and undiscovered mid-century interiors. Among these significant spaces, none are more celebrated yet underpublished as the homes created by architects and interior designers for themselves. This collection of newly commissioned photographs presents compelling homes by influential designers Russel Wright, George Nakashima, Harry Bertoia, Charles and Ray Eames, Eva Zeisel and others. Intimate as well as revelatory, Williamson’s photographs show these creative homes as they were lived in by their designers: Walter Gropius’s historic Bauhaus home in Massachusetts; Albert Frey’s floating modernist aerie on a Palm Springs rock outcropping; Wharton Esherick’s completely handmade Pennsylvania house, from the organic handcarved staircase to the iconic furniture. These homes are exemplary studies of domestic modernism at its warmest and most creative. Published by Rizzoli on October 12, 2010.

    Designed by Harry Bertoia for Knoll® Harry Bertoia first met Florence Knoll Bassett (then Florence Schust) at Cranbrook Academy of Art. Years With his iconic seating collection, Harry Bertoia transformed industrial wire rods into a new furniture form. The events that made this work possible began a decade earlier at Cranbrook Academy of Art when Bertoia met Florence Knoll Bassett (then Florence Schust). Years later, the Italian-born designer was invited to work for Florence and her husband Hans Knoll. Bertoia was given the freedom to work on whatever suited him, without being held to a strict design agenda, and the result of this arrangement was the Bertoia Seating Collection (1952). Featuring a delicate filigreed appearance that’s supremely strong, these airy seats are sculpted out of steel rods. In his art, Bertoia experimented with open forms and metal work, and these chairs were an extension of that work. "If you look at the chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture," said Bertoia. "Space passes through them." After designing his seating collection, Bertoia returned to focusing mostly on sculpture. His work was often used in projects by Eero Saarinen (another Cranbrook friend), notably at MIT and the Dulles International Airport. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in Italy.

    Who else but Philippe Starck would dare mess with a king? Reinventing the classic Louis XV armchair for Kartell, the playful Louis Ghost Armchair (2002) is a postmodern triumph of technical innovation and historical style. Translating the varied lines and formal geometry of its predecessor into a single form of translucent or opaque black or white injection-molded polycarbonate, it is a robust chair with not a single weak point. A generously sized seat and medallion backrest offer leisurely comfort, as do the subtly curved armrests. Resistant to scratches and weather conditions, it is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Stacks six high. Recommended for residential and commercial use. Manufactured in Italy by Kartell. Set of 2 available in clear.

    LC4 Chaise Longue The LC4 Chaise Longue (1928), dubbed the "relaxing machine," is a lounge that mirrors the body's natural curves while appearing to float above its supports. A tubular bow-shaped frame holds a bed of fabric atop a rectilinear steel base. The moveable frame adjusts along the base from upright to full recline with ease, anticipating later ergonomic furniture. The LC4 is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassina's Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina in Italy under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation.

    Freeing the barbeque from the backyard, the Notebook Portable Grill (2005) folds up into a slender, nine-pound notebook-shape with a carrying handle. Included are two chrome-plated grill surfaces that sit at different heights within the frame (and can be folded into the grill when it’s shut for carrying). Measuring only 1.25" thick when folded, this little grill goes from patio to park to poolside and can pack into a backpack for camping trips or beach visits. Note: The grill becomes very hot. Be sure to place it on non-flammable, flat ground and use caution around children and animals.

    ITokyo-Pop Armchair $600 Designer Tokujin Yoshioka njection-molded polyethylene emerges as something wholly natural and fluid in Tokujin Yoshioka’s Tokyo-Pop Collection (2002). The indoor/outdoor collection’s sensuous, organic lines were defined by the proportions of the human body, creating a study in the innovative use of a man-made material. Initially fabricated out of pliable honeycomb paper, the prototype was then shaped on the basis of the imprint left by a body while settling into it. The polyethylene used to mold the collection is 100% recyclable. Named Design Miami/Designer of the Year 2007, Yoshioka has work in the permanent collections of MoMA and the Pompidou in Paris. A designer who interprets his work to be the creation of something surprising and joyful, Yoshioka stays true to his philosophy with Tokyo-Pop. Made in Italy.

    Fortuny Lamp $5,000 Designer Mariano Fortuny Height adjustable. Reflector swivels for multi-directional lighting. Large scale. Iconic 1907 lighting design by Mariano Fortuny. The Fortuny Lamp (1907) represents the early modernist emphasis on industrial materials, functional style and the spatial role of objects. As compelling as modern sculpture, the lamp dominates space, but also stands up to inspection of every well-engineered detail. This may be the most passionate and powerful piece of lighting ever produced. It is height-adjustable and rotates to direct light as desired. Dramatic in larger spaces: reception areas, restaurants or an open living area. Bulb included: incandescent 500W, E40.

    Tepee $2,200 Dave Ellis for DWR For adventurers of all ages, the classic Tepee (2008) is a simple solution for spending time outdoors with minimal impact on the surrounding landscape. This one was crafted for DWR Tools for Living by Dave Ellis, who spent 10 years working in the canvas business before creating his own line of tents and tepees in 1982. We chose his work because of his quality materials and construction that provides proper ventilation, flame resistance and reinforced stress points. What’s also unique about this design is the sewn-in floor liner that allows proper air flow, while ensuring that nothing accidentally leaves or enters the Tepee. This floor also makes it easier to see where the poles should be placed when building the Tepee. The floor liner is not waterproof, which Ellis did on purpose since material that breathes won’t kill the grass underneath.

    Egg Birdfeeder $150 Designer Jim Schatz Watching birds dine at a bird feeder is a diversion that never gets old. It can be done in the city or the country, can be relaxing or exciting, and, like every other daily activity, benefits from good design. Named one of Fortune magazine's 25 Best Products of 2004, the Egg Bird Feeder attracts the attention of birds and humans alike with its bright colors and organic shape. Handcrafted of ceramic earthenware that is cast, glazed and fired, the birdfeeder's glossy-surfaced egg shape prevents squirrels from getting a grip, appropriately melding beauty and function. Weatherproof spun aluminum fittings provide perches for four or more birds from which to feed. The Bird Feeder is easily disassembled and refilled, and hangs from a sturdy aluminum cable. Made in U.S.A.

    Philippe Starck is building a house of ghosts. After the success of his Louis Ghost Armchair, Starck has now brought that same aesthetic daring to his Charles Ghost Counter Stool (2005).

Offering a comfortable perch, the Charles, like the Louis, can be used in nearly any environment, indoors or out.

    Poul Christiansen Architect Poul Christiansen's classic folded lamps have the same following in Europe as George Nelson's Bubble Lamps have in the U.S., gracing homes, public spaces and royal chambers for nearly a century. The Le Klint 171B Pendant (1969) is crafted of color-stabilized antistatic plastic sheeting that's hand folded into elaborate multilayered and waved forms. Infused with handcrafted quality, the pristine, modern elegance of the lamp is furthered by the fact that the shade can be easily removed and washed. Crisp white light is diffused from the entire form for stylish and efficient lighting in residential or commercial spaces. UL listed. Made in Denmark. Bulb (not included): incandescent 75W/120V/E26/A19.

    Designer: Matt Carr. Perched on three elegantly tapered walnut legs, the Rolly is a small side table with big appeal that harkens back to the curvaceous aesthetic of the 1930s and ’40s. Designed by Matt Carr and conceived with the same combination of utility and seductive attention to detail as his Rolly Storage Mirror, the Rolly Side Table forgoes traditional drawers for a drum top with sliding tambour door. Fusing new technology and natural materials, the sliding panel is constructed of walnut that’s laser-cut and then laminated to a canvas backing to give the wood flexibility to round the corners. Because the wood strips are meticulously kept in their original order, the result is a seamless, solid appearance. Material: Walnut; Canvas backing on sliding panel. Measurements H 19" W 18" D 18"
