IRECENTLY READ a story about a chair. It caught my eye for a couple of reasons. Its classic mid-century aesthetic was one; the other was the fact that we’re doing a piece on designer chairs for this issue (page 24). I liked it for its thin beech legs and spindle-back design, but what I loved was the story behind the chair’s origins. It’s a story that’s relevant to the world we’re living in – a story about design in adversity. The Ercol chair – popular among design-minded homeowners in the 1960s and highly collectable now – has its roots in the austerity of post-World War II England. With much of Ercol’s manufacturing capacity taken up by the war effort, the company emerged after 1945 constrained by limited raw-materials supply and construction…

ANNETTE KLINGER, FREELANCE WRITER & THING-MAKER What is your all-time favourite design icon? The Morris chair. As a child, I always just knew it as my dad’s chair. When I moved into my first apartment, he gave it to me. I love its understated, timeless simplicity. Annette is a longtime VISI contributor with years of experience in writing about design, and we regularly ask her to bring her appreciative eye and sharp insight to architectural features and house stories alike. In this issue, Annette talked to architects Grete van As and Johan Wentzel about the designers who influenced their work (page 36) and explored a new Robert Silke-designed hotel in Green Point (page 122).

THE GENTRY SOFA IS THE CULMINATION OF A SEARCH FOR METICULOUS, WELL-BALANCED COMFORT. RESTRAINED EXAGGERATION Photographed at Moroso founder Patrizia Moroso’s enviable home in Udine, northern Italy, these lounge chairs and sofa are all by acclaimed Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola (who also designed the chair on the cover). They reflect the designer’s special affinity for combining fresh takes on making techniques – as seen in the “stocking stitch” backrest on the Biknit chair (left) – with careful attention to comfort and usability. The Gentry sofa is all about “finesse”, says Moroso, and is the culmination of “a project whose origins lie in the search for meticulous and well-balanced comfort, restrained yet with a nod to exaggeration”. These are pieces on which one can sit up and be enthroned – or simply lounge…
