In preparation for NeoCon, I got the chance to talk with industrial designer, John Kaloustian, about his latest seating collection for Grand Rapids Chair, called Reece.

Kaloustian, an accomplished industrial designer from Detroit, designed Reece for commercial dining spaces. Reece features a separate wood seat and back, steel frame, and exposed mechanisms like bolts and fasteners.

One look at Reece and you’ll notice a distinct sense of nostalgia. Kaloustian warmly describes Reece as “honest,” and we couldn’t agree more. Take a look at the rest of the interview to learn the story behind Reece.

JK: It is important to consider where a chair is used. In a restaurant or dining setting, the chair scale is often smaller and the weight should be on the lighter side to easily slide a chair in and out from a table. The appearance of strength is important so that a user feels there is a quality of support without any compromise.

AR: I like how most of your furniture designs feature playful shapes, yet you have such a pragmatic and diligent approach to design. Would you agree and expand on that interesting juxtaposition?

JK: I believe it is necessary that a chair should first be comfortable for its designated use. We must consider whether it is for short or long term use, and whether it needs to be cleaned frequently. Next, it should offer a sense of personality that will enhance the environment where it is used, and give a dining space a more memorable experience.

JK: In the past, I rented space in a printing shop and I remember liking the simplicity and comfort of the factory chairs around the facility. While these chairs were not modern darlings of design, this type of seating was honest in appearance, durable, comfortable, and simple to fabricate.

JK: Factory seating often has a separate seat and back, along with more exposed mechanisms. That’s why Reece uses a simple back bracket and rubber disks to add back flex while a modern chair may try to hide a spring.

JK: I think many of us like the style of old homes and refurbished lofts, since there is a nostalgia for the past, as architects and builders used quality materials. New spaces are striving to convey this same affection. I live in a Tudor revival home from the 1920’s which shows influence back to the middle ages of English architecture. Today, new homes gain inspiration from Tudor revivals of the 1920’s. Architecture, fashion, products, and color often look to the past to help evolve the future. Fabrication and materials are more interesting when they display a quality of craft in appearance.

JK: Based on how the chair is used, a handle is a big benefit to move the chair in and out from a table. As the back attachment evolved, I found that extending the back bracket out more created a solution that integrated a handle.

The Reece Collection will debut at NeoCon 2016 and is available to order July 11, 2016. See Reece in our LookBook Vol. 2 here .

AR: Reece is quite different than the contract office furniture you’ve designed. Was your approach any different to designing this chair?
