A J.RUITER Design for Grand Rapids Chair

The Leo chair is a new take on a classic form.

“I was thinking about this chair for a long time and there it was right in front of me…well, sort of. I’m on my back, looking up at the underside of my 1962 Lincoln Continental. I see the details I have been struggling with as I notice the simple tubing of the suspension. The chair’s rear legs are the back and the structure. All connecting, working together to support each other.”

Leo features multiple bent steel tubes that cascade into the frame and legs. Available with a wood or upholstered seat.

Available at Grand Rapids Chair.
