ACAPULCO CHAIR THE ORIGINAL

Many myths and stories surround the creation of the original Acapulco Chair. The most popular is that a French tourist wanted to build a chair and hammock mix in the 1950s. A story that we personally don't necessarily want to believe. The fact is that the beginnings of the original Acapulco chair are subordinate to this period. A time when Acapulco was a jet set destination for American celebrities. A time when air travel was very exclusive and expensive. Elvis was there regularly, Brigitte Bardot probably too, as were Frank Sinatra and the Kennedys.

The actual story of the original Acapulco chair is arguably more complex. We know from our own experience how intensive the development of a new design is. From the first steps of inspiration to a finished product, it often takes 2-3 years, sometimes even more. At ACAPULCO DESIGN, we firmly believe that the Acapulco Chair was inspired by shapes and patterns found in Mexican culture and nature. This also reflects our philosophy on the original Acapulco chair. ACAPULCO DESIGN shows a very strong connection to the country of origin. Our Acapulco armchairs are made in a small factory in Mexico City. You can find more information here and on our blog.

THE ACAPULCO CHAIR AND ITS EVOLUTION

A very clear vision of Acapulco Design is to further develop the original design of the Acapulco Chair. This does not happen by chance, but in a strong examination of the original design and discussions with furniture and industrial designers. For example, when we developed our AD-1 and AD-4 dining chair models in cooperation with HANSANDFRANZ. In March 2021 we launched a dining table. This was designed by Olivia Herms, who worked for Konstantin Grcic for over 10 years. All of the components of the Ring Table are Made in Germany. In spring 2022 the little brother of the RING TABLE will come onto the market. The LOW TABLE is also inspired by the geometric shapes of the Acapulco armchair and is now available in 3 versions exclusively from Acapulco Design.

ORIGINAL ACAPULCO CHAIR AND THE TOPIC OF SUSTAINABILITY

Our Acapulco Chair stands for fair trade and social responsibility. Our employees in Mexico not only earn the minimum wage, but also receive a significantly higher wage than average. Occupational health and safety regulations such as minimum age and benefits are strictly observed. We are committed to equality by giving women and men the same wages. Regular visits and an exchange with the factory in Mexico ensure transparent cooperation. We also help protect the environment by using a large proportion of recycled plastic in our models and by using solar energy to power the factory. We value sustainability and longevity through the use of high-quality materials and the careful manufacture of our Original Acapulco Chairs.
