Walter Lamb for Brown Jordan, 'Waikiki' chaise lounge C-4720, bronze, cord, United States, 1950s
The chaise lounge model C-4720 by Walter Lamb is nicknamed 'Waikiki' after the district of Honolulu, Hawaii. Lamb designed the chaise lounge as a rocking chair which stands on a rounded leg that allows the movement. Like his other outdoor designs also this model shows a well-balanced metal frame with a cord seat. The textile creates an airy seat that adjusts to the user.
Walter Lamb (1901-1980) lived in Hawaii in the 1940s where he experienced the consequences the attack of Pearl Harbor has caused. Lamb took salvaged metals and reused them to design his outdoor furniture, as an “inventive recycler” as Elle Decoration called it in an article in 2017. He reused bronze, copper and metal that were left behind from the military and sculpted the frames of his pieces with cord as the seating material. Lamb’s designs are characterized by lightness and liquidity and materials that get admirable patina over time. The successful collaboration between lamb and brown Jordan started in the 1950s.
