BOFINGER DINING SET DESIGNED BY HELMUT BATZNER

Regular price £475.00 Sale

Extremely rare to find a whole set. The chair is probably the first one-piece mass-produced plastic chair. It was designed by Helmut Bätzner's architectural office during the 1960s in conjunction with the building project for the State Theatre in Karlsruhe (Germany). Plastic furniture was still a new venture and Bätzner, seeking advice, presented his idea to furniture manufacturer Bofinger. He became a powerful supporter of the project, eventually lending his name to the chair. Intended for indoor as well as outdoor use the chairs are light, moveable, stackable, compact and weatherproof. 

The set is in good structural condition and is well weathered which gives it fabulous patina.
