About this item

Set of 6, black, 40/4 chairs, by renowned designer, David Rowland, made in the
U.S.A. for The General Fireproofing Company, Youngstown Ohio, circa 1969.
(Selling the complete set, not individual units.)

The labels are under all chairs and the manufacture date of "07/07/1969" is visible under one seat.

David Rowland’s 40/4 stackable chair is noted by the design world, as one of the most
important designs of the 20th century. Its elegant lines, excellent ergonomics and
unsurpassed ability to create space without taking up space, continues to attract
architects and designers.

An indisputable icon of multifunctional design, the 40/4 chair is featured in design
collections and museums all over the world.

These vintage, MCM chairs are in very good, overall original condition and remain fully functional.
They've been cleaned and polished to stay as consistent as possible, with their original
condition. There are some marks and signs of wear consistent with age and use.
The patina also presents some signs of slight wear consistent with age and use for
a nearly 50 year old chair.

One chair has a scratch and slight marks of oxidization (see photos.)

The pads have been replaced for better protection of floors (to prevent scratching) and are therefore, not original.
