A bit about Jindrich Halabala

Not only was Jindrich Halabala a key figure in furniture design in the former Czechoslovakia, he was also an influential writer and educator. As with many designers of his era, the pressures and challenges of working before, through and after the Second World War undoubtedly influenced both the type of materials that he used in his designs and the styles that he ultimately brought to market.

It was Halabala’s belief in the importance of functional, well built, modular and mobile furniture that led him to create many of his signature designs as chief designer of United Arts and Crafts manufacture – known as UP.

Choosing Jindrich Halabala chairs

Halabala's designs include tables, chairs, sideboards, flower stands, drawers, couches, lamps, and many more others. His style is possibly best described as a fusion of Art Déco, Czech Cubism, and the European mid-century innovation. Through his H and E lines of furniture, Halabala worked with not only woods like beech but also with steel to create tubular pieces.
