Introducing The Drop Chair To Cafe Chairs Melbourne

drop chair sandAt Cafe Chairs Melbourne we’re proud to offer for sale this contemporary looking drop chair in a sand colour. It’s the kind of chair that makes you smile. It’s the small chair with a big personality; it’s a sculpture using a simple pure form. All of these things can be used to describe it, but where did the idea for such a surprising chair come from?

Surprisingly although it looks, cool, contemporary and of the moment, the original design is 57 years old. Back in 1958 Danish designer Arne Jacobsen was given the task of designing furniture for the famous Raddison Blue Hotel in Copenhagen. Along with the swan and the egg chairs he also designed the drop chair – so called because of it’s magnificent tear-drop shape. However Jacobsen only ever designed them in limited numbers and they were made exclusively for the hotel. Until recently, that was the only place that you could find the magnificent drop chair

Fast forward 50 years and Jacobsen’s grandson, also a designer, set himself a project to resurrect the original design, by recreating it. However instead of wood, he and his team chose plastic as their material of choice. They borrowed an original drop chair from the Raddison Hotel and set about examining it so that they could create the exacting gorgeous curves and tear-drop shape. Finally after much work the new version was unveiled to deliver a chair that was in keeping with the original design but giving off a fresh and vibrant twist.

Now the chair comes in a wide variety of colours to really make your cafe, restaurant, or bistro stand out from the crowd. With a choice of chrome or powder coated legs and a tough resign body the drop (as it’s known) doesn’t just look good, it’s incredibly functional too, so it’s ideal for the stresses and strains of any busy cafe.
