Highly wanted industrial model S22 stacking chairs by Pagholz.Galvanitas, in Brown frontside with Brown backside and with very dark brown frame. The shells have a beautiful wood grain structure.
Designed in the manner of famous industrial designs by Wim Rietveld, Jean Prouvé and Friso Kramer (‘pyramid’ or ‘compass’ base principal ). These Sculptural chairs are made for optimal comfort and heavy duty; the pagwood seating parts are made of a high density veneer / resin composite and are shock-, scratch-, break- and weather-resistant, and even resistant to burning cigarettes.
The frames are not made of tubular construction, as in most similar designs of this period, but folded sheet metal, ending in rubber feet. Very solid, and a revolutionary design from the 1960’s. The clever design of the chairs’ legs makes it possible to create a bench in just a few seconds, just by putting one leg on the other, which will fit in each other.
All chairs in solid, great vintage condition.
