The Lounge Chair (1956) by designers Ray and Charles Eames, the Knotted Chair (1996) by Marcel Wanders, the scrapwood furniture designed by Piet Hein Eek and the Panton Chair (1960) by Verner Panton have all become famous pieces of furniture. The designs are timeless and replicas have become very popular in today's interiors. The designers themselves sometimes virtually attain star status. We also admire the makers for their craft and eye for taste and detail.
