Does February’s Chair of the Month bring back memories of the Swinging Sixties?

Chair of the Month for February is this wonderful GoGo chair, designed by Robert Bennett for Evans of High Wycombe. Evans have been making bespoke sofas and chairs since 1958, and the GoGo reflects their innovative and experimental designs of the time which used new materials and styles, such as this blue vinyl, bucket-shaped chair.

Robert Bennett was a local furniture designer whose career also saw him designing pieces for another local company, Gomme Ltd, as part of their renowned G-Plan range.

🪑 You can see this chair in our temporary exhibition ‘Our Place’ until 10 March 2024.

Chair of the Month is a partnership between Wycombe Museum and the Regional Furniture Society.
