I always imagined the Ribbon Chair as a sort of throne, with those beach lounge chair 1/2" wide plastic ribbons or bands stretched across the frame that would allow sound to pass through it, but, as handled by a hip 1960s designer. I'm pleased to see it's far more graceful (and probably should've expected no less.)

Hi Jeff, good to hear from you.
Pierre Paulin, and architect, designed the Ribbon Chair for AritFort in 1966.
"A different vision on the well-known ribbon form. The elastic fabric is crease resistant. Forever. Metal tubular frame with horizontal springing. The base is made of pressed wood."
Kathleen rescued it from a Lafayette Street shop piled high with artifacts. It's getting a bit old now... It's super mega comfortable, it's one audiophile failing is it's not quite high enough to get my ears at tweeter level on the JMLab Utopias. I just tilt the rear of the speaker up and all is well.
The only throne we have is the same one you have in porcelain!
