A design classic originally designed in 1938 by Hans Coray. The Landi chair is the original outdoor dinning chair but is versatile enough for indoor use. It can be stacked 6 chairs high as per the original design. Vitra’s re-edition of this classic chair stays true to the original while making the most of the latest technology available. The seat is made from pressed aluminium sheeting with a matt anodized finish. Armrests and legs are made from bent aluminium with the same finish. Each chair has 91 holes. New Landi Chairs today retail £600 and more each.

Condition:
There are the usual marks to the ends of the arm rests from years of stacking as well as some general scratches as evidenced in the photos but in overall very good condition. They have all kept their rubber feet covers so there are no concerns with using the chairs inside the home.

Price is £225 per chair. Four are available.

DIMENSIONS: H:78.5cm(30.90in) Seat Height:47.5cm(18.701in) Width:51.5cm(20.27in) Depth:65cm(25.91in)

History:

When Hans Coray, humanist and artist, designed the aluminium chair as the official seating for outdoor areas of the 1939 Swiss National Exhibition – He created a chair that would be weather-proof, lightweight, supremely comfortable and suited for industrial production using the latest technical capabilities of aluminium processing. Up to now, the history of this classic chair has been marked by alternating manufacturers, breaks in production and modifications to the original design. Now over seventy-five years after its debut, the Landi Chair has found a new home at Vitra.

Since 2014, working together with Henriette Coray (Hans’ wife), Vitra has taken the Landi Chair back to the original shell form and detailing while simultaneously adapting it to today’s standards.

It’s obvious to see why this chair has rightly gone down in history as a modern masterpiece.

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.
