These chairs are stunning examples of the work of Charles Hollis Jones, a pioneer of Lucite and acrylic furniture. The chairs feature a sleek and minimalist design, with a chrome frame that supports a sling seat made of clear Lucite. The Lucite curves gently at the edges, creating a waterfall effect that contrasts with the straight lines of the metal. The chairs are signed by the artist, numbered '160/2500' and dated '1968'.
The waterfall collection is one of the most iconic and popular series of furniture by Charles Hollis Jones. It consists of various pieces that feature a distinctive design element: the use of Lucite to create a cascading effect that resembles a waterfall. The collection includes coffee tables, side tables, dining tables, chairs, stools, benches and more and showcases Jones’s skill and innovation in working with the material, as well as his ability to combine it with other materials such as brass, nickel, chrome and glass. The waterfall collection is elegant, modern and timeless, and has been admired by celebrities and collectors alike.
