Jindrich Halabala Dining Room Chairs

Czechoslovakian, 1903-1978

Thanks to design lovers’ enthusiasm for Art Deco and mid-century modern furniture, and the increasingly competitive market for pieces by more famous creators, 20th-century Czech designers are making their way back onto the international stage. Foremost among these talents is Jindrich Halabala.

Halabala was a cabinetmaker’s son whose training was almost wholly focused on woodwork, first at a state-run vocational school for woodworking in Valašské Meziříčí and later at UP Závody in Brno, where he ultimately became chief designer. His curvaceous bentwood H chairs, such as the H269 and H237, and stylized ottomans have become classics, while his 1930s and 1940s sofas, tables and storage cabinets, with their sweeping curves, stylized geometry and dark, richly grained wood, embody the best of Art Deco furniture design, a style that was brought to worldwide attention at an exhibition in Paris in 1925.

Some see Halabala's work as the segue between early 1900s Czech Cubism and the modern style that dominated the mid-century.

Jindřich Halabala for UP Závody Stool in Floral Tapestry Fabric, 1930s
By Jindrich Halabala, Up Závody
Located in Praha 2, Hlavní město Praha
Stool in floral tapestry fabric and wood designed by Jindrich Halabala and manufactured by UP závody in former Czechoslovakia, 1930s. This elegant Art Deco stool was designed by Jindrich Halabala and manufactured by UP závody in the 1930s. This particular piece stands out in its appearance by retaining its original floral tapestry fabric and iconic ridged design. Functionality in this stool arises through various functions, as you can simultaneously use it as an ottoman for your lounge chair or as a stool to sit on. By employing the designer’s aesthetic vocabulary and materials, this piece is unequaled in its appearance and is sure to add character to one’s interior and brighten up the space by adding a touch of style and elegance. This stool is in good original condition, with wear consistent with age and use. Date of manufacture: 1930s Origin: Czechoslovakia Material: Wood, Tapestry fabric Dimensions: Height 40 cm x Width 38 cm x Depth 38 cm Condition: In good original condition, with wear consistent with age and use. About the designer: Renowned Czech designer and educator Jindřich Halabala (1903-1978) was known above all for his distinctive style of furniture designs he created for UP závody in Brno between the 1920s and the 1950s, where he served as chief designer, a position that strongly helped him to fundamentally influence the appearance of inter-war and post-war Czech households. There, Halabala also met the company’s founder, renowned Czech architect Jan Vaňek (1891-1962). Jindřich Halabala was born into the family of cabinetmaker Štěpán Halabala whose work he learned in a family business in the late 1910s. During the 1930s, Jindřich Halabala developed the famous H series as well as a range of different wooden and tubular steel furniture models, mainly inspired by Dutch architect and designer Mart Stam (1899-1986) and Hungarian-German modernist architect and designer Marcel Breuer (1902-1981). These functionalist designs, which were produced in the manufacturer’s branch in the town of Hodonín, are today highly sought-after collectible items. Focusing primarily on woodwork, first at the State Czechoslovak Vocational School for Wood Processing in the town of Valašské Meziříčí and later at UP závody in Brno, Halabala designed a wide selection of furniture highlighted mainly by great attention to detail and superb sculptural quality, making them hence unequal in their unique appearance. Halabal’s work exemplifies why it is widely considered to be a connection between innovative Czech Cubism from 1910, Art Deco from the early 1920s, and European modern art after the Second World War. Today, his designs endure great popularity among international interior designers and private collectors and can also be found in the permanent collections of institutions such as the Museum of Art in Olomouc, the Moravská Gallery in Brno, and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. Arguably among Jindřich Halabala’s most renowned furniture models are the H-79 functionalist chair...
