1964 (1974), US

Four original design classics by David Rowland, type 40/4 chairs. Very industrial, because the chair is made entirely of metal with an industrial green colour and it has a chromed frame. The chair and the designer won several prizes due to this unique design.

Condition: The chairs are in good condition, there are a few light scratches at the centre of the seats, however, caused by stacking.
These scratches can be seen in one of the photos.
The damage is in the same spot in all four chairs, similar or less than depicted in the photos, but this is fairly normal, considering the age of the chairs.

Shipping is possible, in consultation.

Background information:
The 40/4 chair has been called “the most universally useful chair ever made and accomplished with the least expenditure of material and labor”. In 2010 Contract Design Magazine named the 40/4 number one of the top 10 commercial interiors products of the past 50 years.
