:: With its original silver manufacturer's label on the bottom side, this is a incredibly hard to find 1971 Okamura swivel desk chair with an industrial and oh so retro look to it, perfect for an office or home library. It features aged red (nearly dark hot pink looking now) vinyl fabric with an ivory cream color over the metal base and all throughout the detailing. The chair has a futuristic look to it despite being 40 years old, with its big bulky base with Star Trek silver pleats on the legs. Super funky, unique, and comfortable! Swivels all around and glides on wheels perfectly. Overall condition is very good, with some slight chipping to base edges and some rust on metal portions (especially on the bottom-side of the chair, where the manufacturing label is), some very slight bending in the base, foam poking through bottom-side of chair as seen in last photograph. Vinyl condition is near pristine with no rips, stains or looseness that you might normally find with a chair of this age and make, and it is tightly connected to metal as a wrapped covering. Only note on the vinyl is the color, that we are assuming is a red that has faded over the years (although the color is completely consistent allover with no faded spotting effect, so without another chair like this to compare it to, the color could be original). This chair is particularly rare, as the black vinyl with gray base is more easily found, and may even be a first production of this particular style or color as we cannot find another like it. Known for their innovative office chairs, Okamura is a company still around today. And what makes this chair pretty darn cool besides its look and comfort is that it was only 2 years before this chair was made, that in 1969 Okamura began sales of Japan's first desks and chairs with color. Measures 33" tall and 15.5" wide.
