Item Description

Rare Modernist 1930s Bentwood “Lamda” Chair for Dartington Hall Ltd

The Lamda chair, we have two, were designed by architect Robert Hening and Hein Heckroth, in 1935 and manufactured for Dartington Hall estate. Hening assisted William Lescaze in designing the buildings on the Dartington Hall estate, some of the most celebrated modernist dwellings in the UK.

These are in a lovely tone of oak with those rather fetching bentwood arms. Both armchairs are labelled with the maker's little pressed metal plaque and also with the Dartington transfer to the frames.

The chairs have enjoyed a full professional and authentic reupholster with new fillings and strapwork. The fabric is a good quality period inspired geometric pattern. The frames are firm with no splitting to the arms and the chairs are ready to enjoy.

Price is for 1 chair delivered NOT both.

A very usable classic 1930s piece of British design.

Dimensions - Overall: Height 83cm x Width 64cm x Depth 90cm

Dimensions - Specifically the Seats: Height 41-34cm to Cushion Top (Front-Rear) x Width 51cm d Depth 60cm
