No one mentioned the Panton chair yet? From a sculptural perspective, definitely a favorite!

I went to see a talk by Tom Dixon last year and liked some of his chairs, especially the S and Pylon.

And then there's the Lockheed Lounge by Marc Newson.

Finally, and also surprisingly comfortable if you put the effort in, the Do hit chair for Droog by Marijn Van der Poll.

Ok, so none of those is particularly good at actual comfort. From experience, and still great to look at, the Wassily Chair by Marcel Breuer supports your butt in a lovely way.

I have like 10 or 20 favorite chairs, but if I had to choose just one to take to an island it would be the 1006 Emeco Navy Chair.

I think one of the most interesting and iconic designs in the last 20yrs is the PIANOFORTE line by gregorysung - the duo of Professors Gregory Polletta and Sung Jang. Originally for DePadova and Kartell later produced internationally by Roche Bobois Paris and which Steinway & Son's Magazine https://issuu.com/faircountmediagroup/d ... wo2010/102 later crowned "a definite candidate to become heirloom in the future cleverly combining elegance with a sense of fun and luxury"

The design won a Best of Architectural Digest award, Best of Elle Decor award and The Design Duo award by TL Magazine just to name a few

I am also loving the concept chairs by Joris Laarman Labs: http://www.jorislaarman.com/work/

Check the adaptation chair, a full nylon SLS 3D print then electroplated in copper.
