Modernist Chair, H-269 | Jindřich Halabala | Prague Art & Design

Word Verification
 

The pair of the H 269 type chairs ranks to the most inventive and original designs by Jindřich Halabala, created for the Brno Associated Arts and Crafts Enterprises (Spojené uměleckoprůmyslové závody, famed under the legendary abbreviation UP). The designer here employs all available possibilities of the bent-wood technology which had been polished to perfection by the Thonet company before him. The skeleton is composed of two sides bent into the shape that evokes the Greek alphabetic character, Alpha, by continuing – in fluent, smooth curve – from legs to hand supports. The two side parts are connected by the seating part and the backrest, while the latter two form a single whole. This construction – rather courageous for the time of its origin – was designed in the same period when Aalvar Alto and Bruno Mathsson used to bend plywood in Scandinavia. Both the skeleton and the upholstering underwent demanding restoration, and the modern design upholstering by the Osborne & Little company was applied. The listed price is for the pair of chairs on the picture. . Different upholstery covers available
