Inspiration: Mixing Colorful Outdoor Chairs

Inspiration: Mixing Colorful Outdoor Chairs

This is one of our favorite photos — taken in Oslo last year by a friend, in a neighborhood where a lot of diplomats live. Wouldn't you just love to have that many people in your back yard for a dinner party / lunch party, sitting on all those mismatched chairs? Even just peering from the street, this is such a welcome look from all the "patio sets" that many people seem to be wiping down and putting out this week. What are the chairs though? We can easily identify the yellow end chair (it's one of our favorites), but can't quite pinpoint the armless one. There are several that we think look almost like it but not quite. Can you help?

At the head of the table, Starck's Toy Chair is easily identifiable. And there are a few more sprinkled throughout (we just scored a pair on Boston's Craigslist for $40 each (!) and they are heavy and comfortable). The other one — at first we pegged it as the Air Chair by Jasper Morrison, but the edges and legs look rounder on the Air Chair. And then we thought the Bellini Chair by Heller but a photo of the back of the Bellini seems to have a bump detail that's not on the chair in the photo. So now we're stumped. Can anyone help identify the colorful armless chair that lightens this cheery dining scene?
