A G Plan Rexine wingback swivel and rocking armchair and stool, model 6250, 92 cm wide x 101 cm high. Created in 1962 at the G Plan factory in High Wycombe, the 6250 chair is attributed to legendary designer Paul Conti. The February 1963 catalogue enthuses "uncompromising dimensions and comfort, amply merit its description as the world's most comfortable chair." It was produced into the 1970s in Rexine - also known as leathercloth (as in this example) and other fabrics.
Possibly one of the most famous pieces of furniture ever to be captured on celluloid, its iconic status was assured in 1967 appearing as supervillain Blofeld's chair in the Bond movie You Only Live Twice.
