About this item

The iconic Antelope chair was the result of Ernest Race's commission to produce public seating for the 1951 Festival Of Britain. Its simple steel rod and bent ply construction was a response to materials shortages in post-war Britain, while its playful design reflects both classic Victorian styling and the futuristic molecular and atomic imagery of the Festival itself. Race's creation went on to win a Silver Medal at the 1954 Milan Triennale.

This lovely example was a genuine barn find, and has been refurbished using a new seat and fixings supplied by Race Furniture.
