Rita Reif, who wrote about the design for The Times, gave the Invisible chairs a rave review in a 1958 article. She said, “I knew immediately what it was, how innovative: it was the first time we saw full-fledged modern design in acrylic. Helena Rubinstein had clear plastic furniture in the 30’s, but it was more traditional. This was so light and airy. Dreamlike. And so amusing. Really the most important thing they ever did.” In Reif’s article, Erwine Laverne, a tall, imposing man with a strong ego, told Reif that “the most important element in rooms is people, not furniture.” Hence, the invisibility.
An iconic example of mid-century seating. The scoop-formed seat upon inverted round base shaped as one piece, with the armrests, each chair comes with original loose unique seat pad, truly museum quality, extremely comfortable to sit on, and lovely to look at!
