Airest 'Bahama' Chair & Ottoman
Early New Zealand Modernism at its finest.
The super rare Airest 'No6' armchair (affectionately known as the 'Bahama Chair') is an early pan pacific masterpiece. Out-swept legs elevate a curvaceous, highly organic body to create one of the most memorable local offerings.
The design is a local tribute to the lavish curves and sculptural forms of early organic modernism, most notably that of pioneering design Vladimir Kagan. It is a dangerously comfortable offering so proceed with caution - once you sit back and kick up those feet you'll find it hard to leave.
/ This chair is one of only 8 we have seen in the last 10 years – so yes, it's very rare.
