    Title: NY Folding Chairs and Matching Ottomans by Takeshi Nii, Japan, c. 1950's

    About: A permanent part of the collection of MoMA, the ‘NY’ chair is a highly respected example of modern design. First produced in 1958 by Japanese designer Takeshi Nii, the layout of the chair and ottoman were inspired by foldaway director’s chairs. It was named in honor of the designer’s family name, but it also means ‘new’ in Danish – a gesture of homage to the mid-century Scandinavian aesthetic. The ‘Ny’ chair and ottoman folds into a slender size when not required but offers a deceptively comfortable seating experience. Constructed of light-weight materials like aluminum and maple wood these chairs can be taken practically anywhere from the beach, to the porch or even on safari. With new canvas upholstery, indiscernible from the original canvas, these chairs and ottomans are ready for decades more of use. Make them yours today!
