Karl Springer LTD, Onassis Chair, USA

Karl Springer LTD, Onassis Chair, USA

An iconic form by Karl Springer, the Onassis Chairs, originally commission by Jacquelyn Kennedy Onassis, feature a barrel back and semicircular arm rests..  The chairs can be commissioned in a variety of woods, finishes, including a range of colored lacquers. 

In partnership with Mark Eckman, President of Karl Springer LTD, Todd Merrill has curated a selection of Karl Springer’s most iconic designs to be reissued exclusively at Todd Merrill Studio. 

Though he based his designs on European classical forms, Karl Springer developed an irreverent and non-doctrinaire idiom of bold proportions, highly exotic finishes, and a sometimes-flashy palette that identified him strongly with his American clientele. His work speaks with the confidence and energy of the 1970s and 80s and now finds new relevance in the world of contemporary design. 

Karl Springer LTD pieces are available exclusively through Todd Merrill Studio on a commission basis. Custom dimensions and materials may be accommodated.
