Heller Furniture

An international furniture company, Heller offers cutting-edge products that combine good design, industrial production, and reasonable prices. The company often collaborates with talented designers and architects to realize its innovative line of chairs, sofas, and tables. Much of Heller’s line works for both indoor and outdoor use.

Description

Established in 1971, Heller began by offering a line of stacking dinnerware designed by Massimo Vignelli. It wasn’t until 1998 that Heller turned its attention to furniture with the creation of the Bellini Chair designed by Mario Bellini, winner of the Compasso d’Oro ADI 2001. For approximately 35 years, Heller has paired leading designers with new technologies to create an inventive line of furniture in materials such as roto-molded polymer, injection-molded nylon, and polycarbonate.

  • Bellini Chair— Envisioned by Mario Bellini in 1998, the Bellini Chair is appropriate for indoor/outdoor use for commercial, residential, and institutional venues. A stacking chair made of one-piece injection-molded, fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene, Bellini is defined by elegant lines and tapered legs. It also features a flex-action back that “provides a high degree of comfort.” Available in white, black, and light and dark grey, Bellini has been chosen time and time again by illustrious companies: Veuve Cliquot, for example, included the Bellini Chair in their New York offices.
  • Bocca— Originally designed in 1970 and re-created in 2004 as a re-edition, Bocca, meaning mouth, is a lipstick red sofa that “adds a smile to any environment.” The work of Studio 65, Bocca can sit just about anywhere, thanks to its one-piece roto-molded polymer material. Indoors or out, for commercial or residential applications, Bocca is sure to get everyone’s lips moving. The bulbous mouth is a real conversation piece.
  • Frank Gehry Furniture Collection— Constructed of one-piece roto-molded polymer, the Frank Gehry Furniture Collection includes the Right and Left Twist Cube, Three Sided Cube, Bench, Coffee Table/Sitting Unit, Easy Chair, and Sofa. Executed in silver resin, the Frank Gehry Furniture Collection adds a touch of scintillating sculptural glamour to interior and exterior spaces. The bold monolithic quality of the pieces makes them ideally suited for daring venues. Pieces in the Frank Gehry Furniture Collection are on display at the Mercedes Benz Metropolises Center Concept in Cologne, the New York terrace of Robert A.M. Stern Architects, LLP, and the Swarovski Crystal Worlds museum in Austria.

Thanks to its partnerships with leading designers, Heller products are included in many museum collections worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Smithsonian, the Louvre Museum of Decorative Arts, Vitra Museum, the Pinakothek in Munich, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Cleveland Museum of Art. Pieces created by Heller have also won many illustrious awards such as IF Design, Best of NeoCon, and Red Dot.
