Product Story

Product Story

Designed in 1964, Bumper is a true bucket chair, with a design based on principles of the George Washington swivel chair: a short seat, a nice sweep and good back support. “Chairs should be short in the seat,” Ward Bennett stated, “because then the feet rest on the floor and pressure is removed.” Like other Bennett designs, comfort is achieved in a deceptively simple, nearly seam‑free design. The arm cap is shaped from one continuous piece of fabric or leather, as are the inner and outer shells. Bumper Lounge is available with a four-star, swivel-return base finished in Polished Aluminum.
