The Luft Side Chair re-imagines The Tulip Chair as a modern Danish design that digs deeper into its own lineage.

Its padded leatherette seat provides the layer of comfort and support you need to cherish this design for its function as well as its form.
After years of experimentation with the medium, the original Plywood Dining Chair design was introduced to the furniture market in the 1940s. This new medium (which had previously been used primarily as a building material) presented huge opportunity because it proved to be a versatile material well-suited for mass-produced designs. As a result of suburban expansion post-WWII, a generation of new homes had been built and the inspiration fueled the birth of what is now known as the mid-century style. This design proved so revolutionary that Times Magazine awarded it "Best Design of the 20th Century" in 1999.
