4 Mid-Century Chairs Finally Get Their Due
Some of these chairs were never produced–until now.
1. Designer: Herbert Hirche for Richard Lampert.
Standout: The 1955 stackable chair by the German architect comes back with a seat and backrest in oak plywood or painted one of seven colors and a tubular-steel frame that’s chrome-finished or powder-coated.
2. Designer: Roman Modzelewski for Vzór.
Standout: Originally made in fiber-glass and patented in 1961, but never produced, the chair finally comes to fruition in roto-molded polyethylene with a high-gloss or matte finish, atop powder-coated steel legs.
3. Designer: Hans Bølling for Brdr. Krüger.
Standout: Riffing off the original 1958 drawings, the table goes into production of the first time, with oak, walnut, or black-stained beech legs topped by tinted glass. Side and dining tables also available.
4. Designer: Theo Ruth for Artifort.
Standout: The in-house designer’s 1953 chair is back in a limited edition of 125, now available in five colors of Bute tweed upholstery.
