Egon Eiermann, large set of 24 foldable chairs, oak, 1960, Germany.

These folding chairs were designed in 1952 by Egon Eiermann (1904-1970) for Wilde & Spieth. The chairs are extremely functional and simple in their design, they can be easily stocked away. Yet thanks to their sculptural back and horizontal beams that connect the legs, they still have enough body and strength to look like proper chairs.

This chair is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and was on show at the World Exhibition Brussels in 1958. Eiermann was trained as an architect and his design had functionalism as their main credo.
