Ward Bennett: American Industrial Designer
Born in Manhattan in 1917, Ward Bennett was one of the earliest American designers to introduce industrial materials into the home. Today his designs are celebrated at the Interior Design Hall of Fame and through a permanent collection at MOMA.
One of the prime examples of his work includes his 1963 “Sled Chair.” This piece has a woven-cane seat cradled between a criss-crossing chrome frame.
We have one available at ACQUIRE now. It retails for $350 (a steal!!) so stop by to check it out!
