Armin Wirth Aluflex folding chairs Switzerland 1951 4x





Really nice set of 4 Aluflex folding chairs designed by Armin Wirth and manufactured by Hans Zollinger Sohne in Switzerland in 1951. Known for their convenience these chairs are lightweight and have foldable seats allowing you to stack and store the four chairs in the space typically occupied by just one. Despite their transparent and light appearance they offer comfort and support just like regular dining chairs. Constructed with tubular aluminum frames and seats and backs made of painted birch plywood they not only look sleek but also provide a pleasant seating experience. Notably, three chairs have a painted FDB mark at the back. This was probably the previous place the were. Though the specific location remains unidentified. The ALUFLEX metal tag sits at the back of the frames. Super practical and colourful chairs that you can enjoy for a long time!


Kindly note that these are priced and sold in a set of 4.
