Grant Featherston R160 Contour Chair

Grant Featherston may not have received the same celebrity status as some of his contemporaries but his designs are just as iconic. His R160 Contour Chair is instantly recognizable and a peak of classic modern design. Our reproduction has been lovingly made to mirror the original. The comfy chair is fully upholstered in soft cashmere with a button detail. The legs are made from ash wood. The chair comes in a choice of several colours including the popular Turquoise blue.

The story behind the Grant Featherston R160 Contour Chair

The R160 was designed in 1951 as part of Grant Featherston's Contour series, which was inspired by organic forms in nature. The collection follows the natural curves of the human body and features clean, sculptural lines. It has become an iconic series in Australian furniture design. Featherston's furniture range also includes the Featherston Dining Chair and the Featherston Sofa.
