Design Daily: Plank Collection by CouncilAuthor:Abigail Stone
When designer Eric Pfeiffer set out to craft a new collection of outdoor chairs for San Francisco furniture brand Council, what he ended up with was a set of modern chairs with a touch of innovation. Pfeiffer used the age-old Adirondack chair as inspiration to create a contemporary reinterpretation that might just be a new classic.
The collection includes two lounger-style chairs, one with arms and the other without, and a stackable side chair. All three versions are meant to get us to slow down and relax in the beautiful California sun, but just observing and admiring it’s crisp design can be just as fulfilling. The chairs have a durable white powder-coated steel foundation with an innovative Perennial Wood seat on top. Council and Eric Pfeiffer chose to use this specially treated wood that’s three times more resistant to shrinking and swelling, so it’ll last longer. Phew!
For all of the chairs, the Perennial Wood is laid horizontally and attached to a lithe metal frame on the backside of the seat. The loungers have 12 wooden slats, while the side chair has 13. The side chair’s design is much more compact and ideal for smaller patio spaces, and has the ability to stack up to six chairs high.
The Plank Collection pieces are available in natural, whitewashed, black-stained, or gray-stained finishes. The lounger with arms is $975, the lounger without arms is $875, and the stackable side chair is $365. Seems like a good deal for well-crafted California-made goodness!
