40/4 stacking chairs designed by David Rowland in 1964 in fairly good condition, in pastel-yellow and pastel-blue. These chairs date from the 1970s, and were manufactured in the US. The original colour of these chairs was orange, they have been repainted. The orange colour which is underneath can be seen in spots with minor paint damage. (See photos)
Rowland was an American designer. The chair is called "40/4" because 40 of these chairs can be stacked up to a height of only 4 feet (122 cm). This chair was the first compact stacking chair ever, and is considered to be the gold standard for stacking chairs, due to its unparalleled stacking possibilities and seating comfort, timelessness and elegance.
Condition: signs of wear, minor rust spots (can be removed using a scouring pad).
No dents in the seats or backrests, which are common in these chairs.
Please view all photos to form a complete impression.
This stacking chair has been awarded many prizes and can be admired in the Museum for Modern Art in New York (MOMA) and in St. Paul's Cathedral in London, among others.
