Description

It Was The Chair of the 50s and 60s...

How did this chair get the name ‘Frankfurt Chair’? In 1926 Bauhaus architects designed a new type of kitchen, the Frankfurt kitchen. For the first time, the kitchen workspace was designed based on ergonomic and practical considerations. This chair stood in these kitchens.

The Frankfurt Chair by the traditional German manufacturer Stoelcker since then has been a classic piece of furniture history that has lost nothing of its uniqueness over the past 70 years thanks to its simplicity.

In 1934/35, Max Stoelcker, son of company founder Otto Stoelcker, followed the idea of reducing the chair to its essential components of legs, seat and backrest, and to leave out the connecting elements in between.

The front leg construction developed out of this was patented in 1935 by Max Stoelcker as a registered design with the description: ‘chair with rounded frame at the front and opening at the feet’.

The front feet, frame and seat brackets were glued together in a single step of the work process, guaranteeing durability. As a result, a simple yet comfortable chair was created with simplicity that is accepted as a matter of course at first glance.

However, at second glance the high quality in its simplicity and restraint becomes obvious, making it one of the most important designs of furniture history. The subsequent success of the Frankfurt Chair was enormous and thousands of them were made in the first few years alone. Later in the 50s, as all name-brand chair manufacturers began to produce imitations with small detail changes, the chair was being used by the German Federal Railways, the post office, the army and many government offices and schools.

It became the chair of the 50s and 60s. The Frankfurt Chair experienced a renaissance as a result of a request by Pina Bausch for her dance theatre in Wuppertal, where it played a ‘role’ on stage.An extra, that was danced on and thrown back and forth.Further evidence of its robustness, which justified its ‘revival’, alongside its timeless aesthetics.

Simple, reduced, great feel - this chair will probably make us long friends. As soon as the first one had been unpacked, the tomcat had already had a rehearsal and obviously had a good impression. We thought long and hard about what was timeless, but not boring. We found it! :)

The Frankfurt chair was not for nothing the standard chair of the fifties and sixties. Despite its simplicity, it is comfortable and very robust. This is the original Stoelcker chair. Over the years, the chair has been imitated by many other furniture companies. We have had the chair for almost two years now and don't want to miss it anymore.

I have flirted with them for a long time and now they are here as kitchen chairs. They fit in everywhere without any problems and are very stable and do not wobble.

The Frankfurt chair convinces through its high-quality workmanship and the simple design, especially as a kitchen chair, but also at the dining table in the living room a piece of jewelry.

The chair is for sitting, no more, no less. Form follows function, but in such a way that you don't have to notice it at all. The result is a chair whose Schinkel simplicity indicates that it must descend from the majestic throne. Elegance follows simplicity without superfluous struts, the Ahnherrin Frankfurt kitchen back and forth.
