Large Set of 20 "Berlin" Chairs by Egon Eiermann
Egon Eiermann, combined set of 20 "Berlin" chairs model SE121, beech, canvas and leatherette, Germany, 1961.
This model chair was originally designed for the interior of the New Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche in Berlin. Based on an earlier model chair that Eiermann designed, the SE121 kept the same frame form with its slender legs, a wide seat and the rear cross-support slightly placed forward from the back legs. The original wicker seat has been replaced with black straps. The seats are finished with cushion in black leatherette. The design is build up in square shapes, that returns in stained beech frame, the connections of the belts, and the seat itself.
Few chairs still contain the original bracket attached to back to hold the book in church.
Please note that the price is per item, not for the set.
