Sling chair Rudolph M. Schindler

Published 05 / 10 / 2020

Rudolph Michael Schindler (1887 - 1953) was an Austrian-born architect and designer who settled in Southern California in the 20s. Fascinated by the current of modernism, and in particular by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, he worked for him for many years in the supervision of residences. He became known in particular later thanks to private commissions such as that of the Kings Road House, also known as Schindler House.

Better known as an architect therefore, he also designed pieces of furniture, which are now very popular. This Slinger Chair, designed in 1948 for the Ellen Jansen House in Los Angeles, is one of them. In pine and canvas, this chair readily recalls the influence of modernism on the work of Rudolph Michael Schindler: the purity of lines and the minimalism of volume.
