“A relaxed seating position that can change is a very nice thing to think about,” says Jeffrey Bernett. “And bringing the best thinking you can to a problem is what modernism is all about.” When we challenged Bernett and Nicholas Dodziuk to create a recliner that didn’t look like a recliner, they took us on willingly. Sleek and streamlined, the satisfying Flight Recliner (2005) has a compact footprint, and its patented conversion mechanism takes only a slight, seated push to activate. Upright, the Flight functions as a comfortable, streamlined club chair, and it opens in three stages from feet up to full recline. A stainless steel sleigh base provides stable footing. Lifetime warranty on frame. Made in U.S.A.
With his commitment to function and simplicity and a singular attention to manufacturing detail Jeffrey Bernett has won accolades in a range of disciplines, including architecture, interior design, residential and office furniture, lighting, graphic design, transportation design and fashion. His very first furniture collection, presented at the 1996 International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York, received the Editor's Award for "Best of Show."
Bernett initially entered college to pursue a degree in business, then altered his course to undertake studies in furniture design in England. Along the way, he deepened his understanding of mechanics and manufacturing processes. The combination of design, business and manufacturing expertise has contributed to Bernett's stunning success as a multi-disciplinary consultant. In 2002, he established Consultants for Design Strategy (CDS) in New York. Read more >
