The year is 1967. James Bond villain Blofield can be seen sitting in a distinctive winged chair with a deep-buttoned back and soft foam cushioning in the movie You Only Live Twice. It's a chair that was first released to the world by G Plan five years earlier, soon gaining a reputation as "The World's Most Comfortable Chair".
The year is 2013. G Plan have collaborated with Hemingway Design to launch the Sixty Two Chair, a stunning remake of "The World's Most Comfortable Chair" for modern homes, along with the Sixty Two Footstool, which might arguably be called "the world's most comfortable footstool".
The chair and footstool sit upon a wooden star swivel base with orbital design castors in a nickel finish. The polished beech base and beech laminate footstool shell are available in ash, black lacquer or American Walnut finishes, and the chair and stool pad are offered in a wide range of specially selected leathers and fabrics. For added retro, you can also opt for contrast buttons.
