Available for sale are 11 industrial chairs. Esavian school chairs designed by James Leonard, and they are a British design classic, produced in the late 1940s. The chairs feature very distinctive and innovative die-cast aluminium legs with upholstered seat and back rest.

These ‘modernist’ chairs reflect the manufacturing techniques of the time, utilising aluminium casting technology developed for wartime aircraft manufacturing. James Leonard pioneered this method of pressure-injected aluminium casting for his 1947/8 range and although over one million of the chairs were made, not many survive today.

If you would like to place an order for two or more chairs, please contact Vinterior.
