Call it a Comeback: Spanner Chair by Gus Modern


As much as we love something fresh and new, a well-done design revival can’t be beat. Our friends at Gus* Modern have re-introduced the Spanner Chair, an original 1950 design by Russell Spanner. This unique silhouette is a classic among Canadian mid-century modern furniture, and went out of production a number of decades ago.

The Spanner Chair features a seat made from woven cotton strapping, in 3 colors, and a sturdy, solid birch frame with exposed bolts and finger-joint details available in both a light and dark finish.

The first 100 chairs that were produced were released as a numbered, limited edition series. At Lumens, you’ll find these special edition chairs in Black and Light Birch and Green and Dark Birch.

Are there any design icons you’d like to see make a comeback?
