Mackintosh Chair: for Style and Comfort

In the production of the Scottish designer Charles Mackintosh the various kind of mackintosh chair stands out for the originality and the influence on the following designers. Indeed the Scottish designer projected and realized a set of various chair. All these chairs were recognizable for a unique characteristic, that can be considered the trademark of the Scottish designer for this kind of object: all the various kind of mackintosh chair are characterized by an high backrest.

This characteristic of an high backrest that marks all the kind of mackintosh  chair fits in the canons that inspired the work of the Scottish designer, in the design filed and also in architecture: the shape and the appearance of an object should be closely bounded to its function.
The scotchman Mackintosh, architect, designer, interior decorator and painter, is tought of, along with his "spook school" of Glasgow, an exponent of the "Liberty School".

His very personal style is neverteless considered more similar to the " Viennese school" which developed around Josef Hoffman and Colomoan Moser then to the Freanch and Belgian art novuea, whose decorative excesses he detested.
Mackintosh and his friends desire to ditinguish themselves from the stylistque confusion and mediocrity of the victoria era and in this intent had the backing of the inglish "Arts and Crafts" movement.

In Vienna he meets Hoffman, Moser, Oblick, and the painter Klint, it is during this period that he receives the "Zeitshrift furr Inendekoration" magazine award for a design for the home of a collector and for the decor for the music room of Fritz Waarndorfer the patron of the secession.
He terated wood has a ductile material and loved to cover his furniture with lacqueres which camouflaged joints and showed off only the definig shapes.

In the course of his career he will arrive at one point design rigidly geometric furniture, prefarabbly blackand always with a strong decorative impact.

The canon for an object should be bounded to its function made the mackintosh chair a chair above all, for the shape and also for the technical characteristics, and first of all an object that should give a comfortable seat to the user. Some models between the mackintosh chair was projected and made specially for some Scottish local: like the argyle, the mackintosh chair projected and realized for a tea room in Glasgow. The high backrest of this chair provides some kind of partition between the tables in the room, and granting at the same time a high elegance.

Another series of mackintosh chair was projected and made by the Scottish designer for the living room in his house in Glasgow, when he married Margaret MacDonald. And between the mackintosh chair you must remember the Ingram chair, projected for the withe living room of the Ingram tea room, in Glasgow.
If you choose one of the mackintosh chair for your living room, you will buy not only a comfortable chair for your table, but also a unique in history furniture, with a unforgettable  style and an elegance.
