condition: excellent
Mid-Century Modern, Award-winning, Original, Iconic, in the MoMA permanent collection:

“Gideon Kramer's probable greatest claim to fame was his famous and award-winning ION chair. An icon of mid-century modern furniture design, the ultra-ergonomic chair was a result of his philosophic approach to design. As Kramer told The Seattle Times in 1966, the design came about because he simply viewed the act of sitting as a "dynamic rather than static condition."
