Egon Eiermann, pair of dining chairs model SE121, beech, canvas, leatherette, Germany, design 1961

The versatile chair SE121 was originally designed for the interior of the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche in Berlin, of which Egon Eiermann build two new buildings for in 1957-1963. Based on an earlier model that Eiermann designed, the SE121 has kept the same square frame form with slender legs, a wide seat, and the cross-support in canvas which is slightly placed forward from the back legs. The seats are finished with two cushions in black leatherette.

German architect and furniture designer Egon Eiermann (1904-1970) was at the peak of his career in postwar Germany. He studied architecture at Technische Universität Berlin. German architects Heinrich Tessenow and Hans Poelzig had strong impacts on Eiermann's work. After World War Two, Eiermann began teaching at the university of Karlsruhe and opened his own architecture practice. One of his most famous projects is the new part of the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtnis-Kirche at Breitscheidplatz in Berlin. Besides his work as an architect, Eiermann prove his taste and comprehension of craftsmanship with designing timeless furniture. He is seen as one of the the "qualified upholders of the Bauhaus Tradition". He believed that his furnishings were a natural part of the overall architectural concept.
