Josef Frank designed Armchair 966 in 1938 for his own company Haus Und Garten in Vienna. It was shown in New York World’s Fair in 1939, where Svenskt Tenn's innovative and different designs made great success.
With its horseshoe-shaped backrest and flared legs there is clearly some inspiration from ancient klismos- and sulla chairs. The armchair was in Estrid Ericson’s interior at her summerhouse “Twelve Oaks” in 1952 upholstered in a leopard-patterned fabric.
Price excluding fabric.
