Description from Trainspotters
Produced in Britain from the 1930’s, the tubular steel and plywood stacking chair was utilised extensively in hospital’s, schools and village halls throughout the land.
Production of this utilitarian contract chair ceased towards the end of the 1960’s, when plastic alternatives came on the market.
With its simple lines and classic design, this style of chair has been in constant and increasing demand with our clients since we opened our doors 6 years ago.
For all it’s qualities however, the reclaimed ply chair has its drawbacks. Dry and splintering plywood and, more impractically, the fact that the originals are just too low as a dining chair.
So after some considerable time in development we are proud to unveil our new and improved re-make of this design classic.
Manufactured entirely in the UK from tubular steel and moulded plywood, we have raised these chairs to a standard dining chair height.
The metalwork is powder coated in matt red and the ply is stained and lacquered to a slightly darker colour than the beech originals.
The result, we are confident, is a sturdy, stylish and versatile chair that will sit comfortably in a wide range of interiors.
Please note that there is invariably some variation in timber colour and patination between individual chairs due to natural grain variation in the ply.
These chairs are a high quality UK manufactured product which is very evident in the look, feel and detail. Watch out for cheap imitations.
