Four rare stunning and creative re designed BA2 chairs. Only 90 'Re-worked' ones exist. Celebrating the 70th anniversary of the BA2—a simple metal-frame chair with a wood backrest designed by Ernest Race in 1945 for the British manufacturer Race Furniture-90 of the U.K.’s leading artists, designers, and architects had been invited in 2015 to reinterpret the iconic seat as part of a creative project called Re-Work It.

From Tom Dixon, Paul Smith, Alice Temperley, and Rose Uniacke to Daniel Chadwick, David Chipperfield, and Barber Osgerby, the designers had lent their unique creative twist to the BA2, and all 90 of the redesigned chairs had been suspended from the ceiling in Selfridges’ main atrium in London, in a rather spectacular display curated by Fair & Co. The special editions were auctioned off via Paddle 8 auction House with all proceeds having benefited the Art Room, a charity that provides art-led therapy for children.

This set of untouched rare chairs which also passed through Bonhams at one point were designed by the following:

Kassandra Isaacson (Sitting Pretty for the Art Room
Hugo Dalton (Tresco Chair)
Rose Russell (Roman Holiday)
Miranda Donovan (The Thinkers Chair)

Price is for the set of 4.

THE TRACTOR SHED

By Appointment
Hertfordshire
United Kingdom

WWW.TRACTORSHEDANTIQUES.COM

Welcome to The Tractor Shed.

Having left my profession as a lawyer, I had the opportunity to turn my attention to my real passion: buying and selling antiques of all eras.

I quickly found that the best way forward was to buy what I like; items that make my heart flutter on seeing them for the first time and that I would like to have in my own home. I hope you feel exactly the same way when you look through my collection.

The name 'The Tractor Shed' came about after doing some research into the origins of my family home. We discovered that it was converted from the offices of a business where tractors were restored and sold in the 1960s and 1970s, keeping them going for decades. With this ethos of preserving things rather then pursuing the often-throwaway attitude we so often now see, I started my small business dealing in beautiful items that deserve to be with us for years to come.

Opening hours: Mon - Sat 10am to 6pm. I'm very happy to take calls at any reasonable times outside of these hours, esepcially for those clients where there is a time difference. Please don't hesitate to contact me as I would be delighted to assist to you.
