This mid-century modern piece is the best known and most successful modernist chaise lounge of the 1920’s & 30's. The chair first was created in 1928 and exhibited at the Salon D' Automne in 1929. It was originally commissioned for the furnishing of a single villa in the Ville d' Avray, a commune in the western suburbs of Paris, France. Floating above its supports, the Gravity Lounge utilizes the forces of gravity to adjust its angle while mirroring the body's natural curves.
