Dan Johnson


Just like the name of his famed Gazelle Chair suggests, Dan Johnson Furniture was all about moving leaps and bounds (and looking incredibly graceful while doing it).

Counted among the notable Mid-Century Californian designers, Dan Johnson took a decidedly non-conformist approach to Modernist design, sourcing inspiration from Roman antiquity rather than intergalactic musings. Before moving to Rome and opening his own studio, Johnson designed for both Selig and Brown Jordan. These mass-produced Dan Johnson pieces were streamlined, yet elegant—the Sol Y Luna chair for Brown Jordan and obvious precursor to his sensually sculpted Gazelle chair.
