Lounge Chair with Arms

Gus* Modern revives a mid-century chair designed by Russell Spanner


Starting in May 2014, a classic mid-century-modern chair design that hasn’t been seen for more than half a century resumed production, thanks to Gus* Design Group, a Toronto-based modern home furnishings manufacturer. Known to collectors
as the Lounge Chair with Arms and originally designed by Toronto-born Russell Spanner (1916-1974), it is a unique chair that features a woven-web seat, formed plywood backrest and angular shape – epitomizing the energetic spirit of postwar
North American industrial design. Gus* worked together with the Spanner family to bring the design back to life and to ensure the new lines meet the designer’s original specifications.
