In 2021, four chairs fell into my hands when a woman moving out of her apartment had no use for them anymore. They had already lived with her for over 30 years, and before that, they had belonged to her mother in Vienna. These chairs are very similar to Franz Schuster's "Forum Stadtpark" chairs from 1959.
Despite their age, these chairs showed no signs of instability or creaking. It's a testament to their craft quality that they were still in such great shape after all those years.
I decided to give these chairs a new lease on life by reimagining them for our current time. I wanted to create something new while still honoring their history.
Inspired by the Bauhaus era, I chose four colors that perfectly complemented the chairs' simplicity. The playfulness of the colors encourages free thinking, while the black frames give them an elegant finish.
The colors, brushes and even the green energy used for working with the grinding machine are in line with our commitment to sustainability.
Overall, these chairs are a perfect blend of the old and the new, a testament to the enduring appeal of good design and craftsmanship.
