Various varieties of these Bauhaus inspired tubular steel chairs have been donning waiting spaces in the South African state for a century, since a lot of waiting had to be done in magistrate's offices, clinics, police stations, hospitals, home affairs offices, tax offices, and so on.
But they've been thrown out in favour of cheaper plastic versions decades ago, and now they have become scarce. Humble though they may be, they do have pedigree in the design and architectural world, as they are direct descendants of the tubular steel technology made famous by Marcel Breuer, and that revolutionised the mass-production of quality furniture.
We decided to have fun with this one and covered it in a faux sheepskin by Hertex.
Condition: Good vintage. New upholstery. The frame shows light wear consistent with age.
