Folding wooden chair
Original and exciting design, solid construction, high functionality, low space requirements during storage, portability, durability... Eiermann’s demands of his folding chair were high. He was all the happier with the result in late 1952: „That can’t be done any better!“ Here too Eiermann was probably right, in 1953 in Chica- go the SE 18 was awarded the „Good Design Award“ of the Museum of Modern Art of New York, the year after it received an award at the X. Milan Triennial. Meanwhile, after more than 50 years, it has convincingly passed the practical test too, while losing none of its original charm.
