Tripod Plywood Mid-Century Modern Chair
With its smiling seat and 3 legged tripod design, Avant-Garde describes this high quality reproduction of the original 1963 Hans Wegner design. Tripod’s arching curves and exaggerated seat lines earned the chair nicknames such as wing and smile chair.
Making the Icon
Kardiel’s reproduction of the iconic mid century modern 1963 design is made in true form to the original. It is no accident that this reproduction has the most quality features, all designed to ensure long lasting service and great design. The plywood is molded to the exact curvature and dimension creating soft contours that invite you to relax and stretch your legs out.
The exact back and seat tilt angle puts the sitter in the unique position originally intended. This high quality reproduction features all of the quality construction points and has the good posture of civility and solid form at a fraction of the original cost.
About Vintage Tailored Twill
Twill is an interwoven knit fabric. The thread takes turns in an over and under weave forming a crooked yet overall lineal rectangle pattern that can be discerned at close range. The pattern exists but appears somewhat random when viewed from a normal distance. Vintage Tailored Twill features a finer, tightly tailored flat weave appearance.
Vintage Tailored Twill provides perhaps a more refined, tailored appearance than that of a typical coarse twill. It relies on the multi-tone nature of the fabric strands themselves to provide the appearance of depth of texture.

About American Walnut
The American Walnut species is widely admired for its exceptional color tone and graining. While there are many stains which attempt to miimick the "walnut color" the actual American Walnut species acheives its brown tone without the use of stains. The natural wood presents lighter and darker tones within the various grains, something not acheivable with a topical stain. American Walnut in its natural state is a premium choice for wood species and used often in modernist upscale furniture pieces. American Walnut is capable of coordinating well with other wood species both light and dark.
