Carl Jacobs 'Jason' Chair


  • This lightweight, stacking chair with solid beech frame and bent beech plywood seat was designed by Carl Jacobs for Kandya in the 1950s. 

    At this time in America the Eames’ and Eero Saarinen were experimenting with molding single-piece chair seats and backs, but far simpler technology was required to bend plywood to achieve the same effect, as with this chair. Principally designed for domestic use, the ‘Jason’ chair was in continuous production for almost twenty years. In 1952 three hundred were installed in the South Bank Restaurant on the site of the Festival of Britain.
