Heron

Ernest Race continued to investigate new manufacturing processes with the Flamingo and Heron chairs. The Heron differs from the Flamingo in the position of the legs and the addition of a loose head cushion and loose seat cushion. Both chairs fuse exceptional comfort with a dynamic sculptural form and are contemporary with similar designs by Eames and Saarinen. The design incorporates technically challenging upholstery techniques, still in use today. The iconic look is finished with the addition of the Ottoman footstool.
