The set of two chairs and a rounded table ranks to the standard product of the company Mücke & Melder which was based in, what was then, the Czech city of Fryštát (today part of the city of Karviná). At the turn of the 1920s and 1930s, the company produced Modernist furniture of flexible steel tube whose finish was formed by a layer of copper, nickel and chrome. Some products were made by Mücke & Melder of licence for Thonet. Part of the production was designed by such personalities as members of Bauhaus, Marcel Breuer and Mart Stam. The construction of the Fn 21 FAMOS chairs follows a solution similar to the Brno chairs designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1929. The seating part and the backrest, which form a single whole, are carried by a skeleton made of one piece of steel tube. This not only allowed for achieving the purity of form and avoiding the necessity of joints and welds, but the chair at the same time perfectly recoils which further adds to its comfortableness. The skeleton, equally as the wooden hand rests, survived in an excellent condition. The upholstering was completely restored and furnished with fabric by the Osborne & Little company. The pair of chairs is accompanied by a rounded table Tn 58, supported by three pipe legs with circular base. The wooden desk is covered with veneer. The listed price is for the pair of chairs, the additional price of the table is 7,500 CZK.
