For Sale Vintage Danish Mid Century Modern DUX Galaxy Plastic Lounge Chair - WOW
You are either going to love this or hate it. I have never had anyone have a lukewarm reaction to this chair.
Designed in 1968 by Alf Svensson & Yngve Sandstrom for Dux of
Sweden, this is the pedestal base version of the Galaxy lounge chair.
The base has the swivel mechanism (which is rarer). Button tufted black vinyl cushions
are original. Fantastic 60's European pop art plastic chic. This is sometimes called the Form 8 Chair as well. The design pre-dates the similar designs by
Yrjo Kukkapuro (circa 1975) and is also similar to a design by Joe
Colombo from circa 1970.
THIS CHAIR HAS CONDITION ISSUES, but none that cannot be addressed. THE PRICE REFLECTS THIS.
1. There is cracking near the swivel mechanism (pictured). It is stable (I have sat in this chair frequently without issue). HOWEVER, I would have this taken care of by a professional restorer. It's plastic and will be easy to repair. UPDATE - there is only one hairline crack. What I THOUGHT was a crack was just a decent scratch. It looked like a crack due to the contrast of the yellowing plastic against the white scratch of new plastic.
2. The end of the arms have some wear (on the plastic). This also can and should be fixed. It's JUST NORMAL WEAR.
3. The base has some discoloration (this is fairly common I understand). Yellowing. 4. UPDATE - there is one seam on the bottom cushion that is starting to pull. Still threaded/together, but you will want to strengthen this!

Other than that this chair is in remarkable condition considering it's age and materials. The vinyl is perfect. The foam still supportive. The swivel mechanism works terrifically. Other than where mentioned the plastic is fantastic.
WITH SOME ATTENTION you will have a legendary chair. You can be pretty certain you will be the only one on the block w/ one of these!ITEM DETAILS
