For Those About to Rock (Back)

Whether you're perfecting your posture or lounging like a legendary warrior, this color-crossed Achilles chair is the best seat in the room. The easy boy tribute to the classic Jen Risom chair comes courtesy of rising designer Caleb Zipperer, who made the leap from deliveryman to all-star woodworker by combining his passion for high design with memories of his childhood in Savannah. It's a perfect fit no matter how you choose to sit, so you can file your taxes or throw back a cold brew in perfectly modern comfort. Handmade from Nylon and Oak wood in Brooklyn, New York.

Delivery Information

Caleb Zipperer is a furniture designer and engineer who has lived and worked in Brooklyn for many years. After apprenticing for a number of different designers and working as a bike messenger, Zipperer opened his own studio in 2010. Since then, his pieces have been exhibited at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair and BKLYN DESIGNS. They have also been featured in various publications including Dwell, Surface, New York Magazine, Apartment Therapy, and Core 77. Zipperer attended the Savannah College of Art & Design, and received a degree in industrial design in 2002. He is influenced by ephemera from his childhood, including the pixelated video games he used to play with his brother and cousins, as well as the easy lounging chairs that littered the porches of his Southern hometown. But he is primarily concerned with making objects that are extremely well made. Each of his pieces is both conceived and constructed by Zipperer in his own Williamsburg Brooklyn studio.
