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.
