Egon Eiermann for Wilde and Spieth, armchairs, beech, leather, leatherette, Germany, 1960s
Famous postwar German architect Egon Eiermann designed these armchairs for German manufacturer Wilde + Spieth in the early 1960s. This armchair reminds of the chair SE121 which Eiermann designed for the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche in Berlin. Yet these chairs feature armrests consisting of a strap of black leather. The seat in black leatherette is adjusted to the frame with straps which is a wonderful detail that can be seen in the back. The frame and backrest in beech wood show natural grain, that combines wonderful with the black elements. Wonderful detail are the three gaps in the frame that characterize the chair from the side.
