Pairing Ward Bennett’s love of industrial materials and pursuit of comfort
The Sled Chair draws the eye to its distinctive base—tubular steel welded into an X-shape and mounted on parallel rails. Adding to the bold statement, the seat and back form luxurious ribbed lines, and can be upholstered in a range of textiles to cradle the sitter in uncompromising comfort.
As one of the first American designers to use industrial materials in design, Ward Bennett helped forecast the high-tech look of the 1970s. First produced in 1966, his Sled Chair, with its industrial-style welded tubular steel frame, fits with Bennett’s belief that “real beauty asks to be used.”
