Description Vintage postmodern dakota jackson vik – ter dining chairs red yellow orange and blue

Aren’t these chairs fabulous?? We currently have 77 of these Dakota Jackson Vik-Ter dining chairs in four colors red, yellow, orange, and blue. You get to choose how many and what colors! Their original home was the Topeka Public Library which in 1998 was redesigned by the internationally renowned architect Michael Graves. The 100,000 square foot addition project’s furniture was completely specified by him as well. Not so coincidentally, Michael Graves collaborated with celebrity designer Dakota Jackson to design some of the most avant-garde and high style furniture in the 1980’s, including such works as the Vik-Ter dining chair. This chair design includes a welded steel frame with a cross stretcher and molded plywood seat and back. The Vik-Ter chair received a silver award for environmental design in the 1992 Industrial Design Excellence Awards and was shown in exhibitions at The Weatherspoon Art Gallery, Museum of Arts and Designs, and Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. They are truly a work of art produced by an iconic duo of designers. So, whether you need one, four, twelve or all 77…you need to make them yours!!!
