Designed in 1955 by Arne Jacobson, the versatile Series 7 Chair is an icon of modern furniture design and an object in MoMA’s collection. Characterized by its unique shape with wing-like back, the Series 7 is made from nine layers of pressure-molded veneer. This adds strength, flexibility and durability to the chair’s otherwise slender form. The slim yet strong steel-tubed legs complement the shell’s curved profile. The legs extend just beyond the edge of the seat, allowing multiple chairs to be easily arranged in rows or stacked for storage. Use the Series 7 as a dining chair, an accent piece in your living room or as a seat at your desk. The Series 7 Chair measures 32.5h x 20w x 20.5"d with an 18” seat height. Holds up to 300lbs. Set of two chairs.

Remembered for his contributions to Functionalism, Arne Emil Jacobsen (1902–1971) was a Danish architect, and furniture and homewares designer. His 1950s stacking chairs, which are represented in MoMA's collection, are instantly recognizable worldwide, while his flatware set from 1957, also a design in the Museum's collection, was used as a prop in the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. (The pieces still seem futuristic, even today.) Jacoben's work has been features in MoMA exhibitions, including Transformations in Modern Architecture (1979) and Plywood: Material, Process, Form (2011–2013).
