Lots of chair threads and this might already be one, but curious what are some of your favorites? I know it's a broad category, but curious which ones come to mind first as your favorite and why.

I have many, but I think one of my favorites is the Cherner chair.

If I have to pick one it will be Jasper Morrison's Air chair, regarding the overal story behind the design and manufacturing.

I'm unfamiliar with the Air Chair story, care to give a little more detail?
- The Folding Air Chair is one of the more nicely executed production folding chairs I have ever seen

I've always liked the look of the Jacobsen Egg Chair, but suppose that's too obvious.

My favorite designer chair is probably the simple Eames fiberglass armchair rocker. pretty generic from a designer's standpoint. but the history of the piece and what it's done for furniture design is far reaching.

The Bone Chair by Ross Lovegrove is one of my favorite art/exploration chairs. The forms on it are amazing and I love how it breaks a chair down to it's most essential elements.

I also love the Eames chairs just by virtue of the working processes they developed and what it meant for ID.
Lovegrove's chairs look nice on the screen but then don't work well in reality.
I don't like all of Philippe Starck's playful designs but I do like most of his chairs, and they are excellent.
Travelling through France's cities' is basically a living Starck chair exhibition :)

My favorites are the Eros chair:

Louis Ghost:

Bubble Club (surprisingly comfortable)

Broom chair:
It is made of wood-plastic composites, a great material innovation combining wood waste chips with polymers.
