Description

It was the standard chair of the 1950s and 1960s.

How did this chair get the name "Frankfurt kitchen chair"? In 1926 Bauhaus architects designed a new type of kitchen: the Frankfurt kitchen. At that time, the kitchen workplace was designed for ergonomic and practical reasons. This chair was part of the kitchen.

The Frankfurt chair by the traditional manufacturer Stoelcker is a classic piece of furniture history that has lost nothing of its uniqueness over the past 70 years.

In 1934/35 Max Stoelcker pursued the idea of reducing the chair to its feet, seat and back, leaving out any connecting elements.

Developed as such, the foreleg design was then patented in 1935 under the name of Max Stoelcker and described as: chair seat with rounded frame and forefoot. The forward foot, frame and seat bracket were glued together in a single operation, which ensured the durability of the chair.

The result was a simple but comfortable chair that is at a first glance so plain that it could be taken for granted. With a second glance, however, its simplicity and modesty reveals the high quality, which makes the chair one of the most important designs in the history of furniture.

Following the great success of the chair, thousands of chairs were produced during the first few years. Later in the 1950s, when all of the larger manufacturers of chairs started producing similar knock-offs, the chair was used by the German rail, mail, army and many other agencies and schools. It became the standard chair of the 1950s and 1960s.

The Frankfurt chair experienced its renaissance after a work-order by Pina Bausch for the Wuppertal dancing theatre, where it "played a role" on stage. An extra, that was danced on and thrown about: evidence of its durability and timeless aesthetics.

Simple, reduced, great feel - this chair will probably make us long friends. As soon as the first one had been unpacked, the tomcat had already had a rehearsal and obviously had a good impression. We thought long and hard about what was timeless, but not boring. We found it! :)

The Frankfurt chair was not for nothing the standard chair of the fifties and sixties. Despite its simplicity, it is comfortable and very robust. This is the original Stoelcker chair. Over the years, the chair has been imitated by many other furniture companies. We have had the chair for almost two years now and don't want to miss it anymore.

I have flirted with them for a long time and now they are here as kitchen chairs. They fit in everywhere without any problems and are very stable and do not wobble.

The Frankfurt chair convinces through its high-quality workmanship and the simple design, especially as a kitchen chair, but also at the dining table in the living room a piece of jewelry.

Reduction to the essentials

The chair is for sitting, no more, no less. Form follows function, but in such a way that you don't have to notice it at all. The result is a chair whose Schinkel simplicity indicates that it must descend from the majestic throne. Elegance follows simplicity without superfluous struts, the Ahnherrin Frankfurt kitchen back and forth.
