NY Lounge Chair Blue

Regular Price: £545.00

Special Price £272.00


Designed in 1958 by Takeshi Nii, the multi award-winning NY Lounge Chair was inspired by the iconic director’s chair and showcases a tactile blue fabric seat and wooden armrests, while folding easily away to just 5 inches’ width.

Taking its name from ‘Nii’, the designer’s surname, and ‘Ny’ the Danish word for new or fresh, the blue NY Chair presents a contemporary take on the folding director’s chair, both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The winner of numerous design awards, the NY Chair became a permanent feature at the New York MoMA in 1970.

After seeing a beautiful chair with a fabric seat in Denmark and noticing a folding director’s chair in a pre-WWI magazine, Nii was inspired to create the NY Lounge Chair, combining a supportive fabric seat with a folding mechanism and wooden armrests.   

Coordinating ottoman also available.


  • Folding armchair, reduces to a compact width
  • Blue canvas seat with wooden armrests
  • Permanently featured at the New York MoMA
