1980s, America

On offer: 4 metal 40/4 industrial steel wire stackable chairs, designed by David Rowland in 1964. Manufactured by Seid International.

The chair is called 40/4 because you can stack 40 chairs up to a height of 4 feet. This chair was the first compact stackable chair ever, and is widely regarded as the gold standard of stackable chairs. Due to its unprecedented stacking possibilities, but also due to its seating comfort, durability, timelessness and elegance. Critics often refer to this chair for its unparalleled industrial sophistication and manufacturing method.

Condition: Good, the upholstery has been newly dry-cleaned and the frame/upholstery only have a minimal spot

This stackable chair can be found in the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) and in St. Paul's Cathedral in London, among other places. This chair has the potential to go down in history as one of the most important designer inventions of the 20th century!

To be picked up in Hilversum, delivery is possible in consultation.

  • The artwork arrived in a carton: however, both ends were open on arrival. A little disappointed with the work as it shows some signs of 'foxing' which were not evident in the pics or description.

    That is quite remarkable to hear. We use hard pvc tubes instead of cardboard to make sure it can survive the beating of delivery. Besides that we use shrinkwrap to seal everything in so nothing can happen to it. Do you have pictures of how it arrived because I’d like to make a conpleint to the postal service. I don’t think I understand what you mean by foxing, could you pherhaps send me a message so we can clear everything out?

    As stated in the email we send you as well, the only thing that is 'wrong' with the item is a stain that was visible in the photo's. We have send you multiple emails about a solution but haven't received a reply

    Pensei ser algo maior, tipo dos piratas, pois tenho um extensivel da URSS com 20X e com uma imagem fantástica. Tem uma boa imagem e bom grau de ampliação. É bonito e veio bem embalado
