Design by Marcel Wanders in 2001, the Gwapa chairs have quickly became iconic pieces in design. The original chair is no longer produced but can be purchased from collectors for about $650. The stainless steel and rattan chairs are sleek and modern with a slight retro feel.
The chair that most clearly appears to be influenced by the Gwapa chair is the Nandor from IKEA. The Nandor is made of steel and paper reeds and retails for only $69.99!
