Chair - 423
Chair with painted or chromium-plated steel frame. Cotton elastic straps.
Designed by René Herbst in 1928. René Herbst was a pioneer in the adaptation of simple industrial materials for furniture design. One of his favorite themes (chaise sandows) was the chair with seat and back formed by stretched elastic bands of the type used to fasten packages to a bicycle. This was one of the many versions. It was designed in 1928-29. This chair, along with a matching high stool, was presented at the Salon d' Automne, 1929. In all probability, it was first produced by Etablissements René Herbst.
