Must-Have Collectors Items at Brooklyn's Open Air Modern Written by  Kelsey Keith October 16, 2014 Open Air Modern is based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, but its reach extends to midcentury Scandinavia and beyond with a selection of curated vintage furniture and a hand-culled design library. Papa Bear Chair by  Hans Wegner : "There's so much to love about this chair, but one thing I really admire is how Wegner took a traditional form, the wingback chair, and exploded it. Plus, it's the comfiest chair ever."  Similar to shown at Open Air Modern. Open Air Modern proprietor Matt Singer's tagline for his Williamsburg shop is appropriate: Surround yourself with objects you love. Singer sources—and in many cases, refurbishes—a curated selection of vintage modern furniture, and can speak eloquently about each and every one. He's also amassed an impressive design library from rare designer monographs to interior design surveys from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. We stopped by to get some recommendations on top items for sale; stop by the store in person to chat with Singer and see what's newest in his inventory.
