Chair Tuesday: 40/4 Chair

The 40/4 chair is not one of my favourites because it looks so amazing or is something revolutionary, it's one of my favourites because of its amazing function (from which it derives its name): you can fit 40 of them in a stack only 4 feet tall. Pretty impressive.

That being said, it is still quite a handsome little chair; wonderfully thin and airy, really nice proportions and lovely angles on the legs. David Rowland (1924-2010) designed the chair back in the early fifties, though, like good design should, it still looks fresh and modern.
