Don´s organic designs were unmatchable by any other furniture designer of his time. When I refer to his organic designs, I am talking about that marvelous wood prototype I had the opportunity to see, sit and enjoy, which was the base of what we know as the SLING #8220;sloucher#8220; chair, made in some sort of bone shape disposition.
The #8220;Sling Casuals#8221; line is one of Don´s most classical and successful design lines from the 1960#8217;s. The SEÑAL, S.A. catalogue page above describes the stylish Sling “sloucher” chairs which were produced only in selected tropical woods (zebrawood, cocobolo, granadilla and other local rosewood variants like cueramo), all made with black or brown leather upholstery. The SEÑAL, S.A. shop in Santa Maria de Guido also had a collection of other available leather samples and colors for you to choose from: gray, different shades of brown, beige, etc. to match the Sling “sloucher” chairs to your home décor or personal favorite colors.
Below some Sling #8220;sloucher#8221; chairs from my private collection:
