Barcelona chairs at Knowle sale

30 January 2014Written by ATG Reporter

Knowle Auction Rooms will offer this pair of tan leather Barcelona chairs at their next sale.

Custom-made by Form International/Hille in 1972, and exhibited at the 1979 Interiors Exhibition at Birmingham NEC, the frame is stainless steel rather than the chromed mild steel usually used, and this had to be imported from the US at a cost (in 1972) of £2.50 per inch.

Estimate £400-600 each. The sale takes place on February 12.
