Clipper CS-1. Newspace, Forth Worth (Texas, USA), 1994. Made of multiplex and plastic, mounted on a coated steel frame on wheels. Signed by manufacturer.
The Clipper CS-1 is a computer workstation designed for anyone who spends extensive time using a computer. The capsule like workstation resembles an airplane cockpit with everything in reach of the user. The seat, back and foot rests all adjust to allow for an exact custom fit to a wide range of body sizes. There is a break incorporated into the seat that allows the user to position themselves perfectly in relation to the computer monitor. Air and sound control is also taken into consideration.
The Clipper began as study into the perfect work environment instigated by office furniture manufacturer Herman Miller, who is also credited with the invention of the office cubicle. Newspace put the final design into production and built about a hundred.
The Clipper received critical acclaims in numerous magazines, from Architectural Review to Wired to Vogue magazine. Museums, collectors and companies contributed to the swift selling out of the design.
The Museum of Design in London and The Musée National des beaux-arts du Québec acquired one for their permanent collection.
