Designer: Fabio Fabiano and Michelange Panzini (1972) Country of Origin: Quebec, Canada Materials: Plastic shell seat with powder coasted steel base. Why is it Special? A staple at Vancouver Special, the Solair chair was designed by Fabio Fabiano and Michelange Panzini in 1972 and has remained a classic Canadian design ever since. Using injection moulded plastic technology and steel framing, the Solair chair was born out of the wave of design energy booming from Expo 67. Throughout the 70’s, the Solair was marketed across Canada and the eastern seaboard of the United States going as far south as Florida. Regularly making the pages of Eaton’s and Sears catalogues; the chair became an iconic object of design for North American roadside motels and pools in the 70’s. Lightweight, comfortable and easy to assemble, the Solair Chair (sometimes called the Motel Chair) is an affordable piece of Canadian design history. Perfect for indoor or outdoor use. Dimensions: 61 cm L x 74 cm W x 71cm H
