Unique set of 4 Non Conformist chairs made circa 1970 by Ecart International. The underlying theme of the Non Conformist chair, by Irish designer Eileen Gray (1878–1976), is comfort. Its tubular frame was designed ergonomically, as Gray understood that the average human has a tendency to sit slightly to one side: “Observe the very distinctive and comfortable form of the chair – one has removed one of the armrests to give greater liberty to the body, which can lean to one side and look or turn to the other without any discomfort.” To this end, one curved armrest was upholstered; the other simply consisted of a slanted chrome steel bar. These chairs are in wonderful vintage condition with age related subtle creases in the leather. The leather is still very supple and has no dry cracks. The optional glides are added to protect the chair on hard floors but are removable. Priced individually, 4 chairs available.
