We introduce the latest version of Huisraad Modern's famous Chappie Chair. A Chappie Chair is a refurbished classical South African school hall chair. We powder coat the steel frame and strip the frayed outer layers off the plywood seats and backs and do our own new finish.
With the Chappie Standard we decided to stay as close to the original as possible. We spray the birch bent plywood with a high gloss varnish to bring out the natural colours and nuance of the wood. With that you can choose between three frame colours - a greyish off-white, anthracite, and black.
Condition: Good. Please keep in mind that these chairs are between 60 and 80 years old and they've been in service in schools for all that time. We do not endeavour to remove all the marks that's been left on them as they've been refurbished many times. Some pop rivets holes in the wood are a little misshapen and extra holes have been drilled into some of the frames. The frames and seats and backs are similar in shape and size, but they are not identical. We believe this adds to the charm of these chairs.
Dimensions: 39 x 39 x 81 cm (more or less...)
Did you know: Architect Marcel Breuer created the first tubular steel frame chair prototypes in 1927 on which thousands of designs were based for mass produced furniture throughout the 20th century.
