The Superstar is the Danish version of the Falcon. The Superstar is a low slung armchair with a hammock-like construction. The Seat and backrest are formed like a leather sling and hook over a visible external frame. An immensely popular design, the superstar is a controversial piece. The distinctly similar Falcon was designed at the same time. There was a showdown between the Norwegian production house Vatne who owned the ‘Falcon’ and the Danish designed and produced ’Superstar’. A court case ensued and the Norwegians came out on top. Production of the Superstar discontinued and is therefore quite rare. A quality piece with a great story.
This chair is In very good condition. The reconditioned leather has very little patina and is soft and supple. The hammock like seat is slung on the sturdy frame with leather buckles these are still strong and secure but give the piece a distinguished vintage look. This is a quality design built to last a lifetime.
