Roland Rainer Lounge Chair Armchair Cafe Ritter, Wood Newly Upholstered, 1950s

About

A midcentury lounge chair designed by Roland Rainer for the "Cafe Ritter" in Vienna, Austria, in 1952 and manufactured by Emil & Alfred Pollak. The chair is in excellent restored condition. It has been reupholstered with a high quality fabric in a dark and light grey tone. The wooden frame is made of a beech in a warm tone. There are also other Roland Rainer chairs in our stock (please see the last images for examples). Roland Rainer (1910-2004) was an Austrian architect and professor. He was teaching at several European Universities and he was one of the most important architects in Austria. In June 1952, the Viennese municipal council decided to build a large, multifunctional event hall 'Wiener Stadthalle' (Vienna city hall) and in October an architectural competition was announced. It was attended by 16 international planners and planning communities. Roland Rainer won the competition before Alvar Aalto (Finland). The 'Wiener Stadthalle' was one of his most significant works and was built from 1956-1962. The chairs for the city hall are very well-known and sought-after design objects. The offered pair of lounge chairs were designed for the Viennese coffee house 'Cafe Ritter'. These chairs also were used by Austrian architect Oswald Haerdtl for the 'Cafe Prückel' in Vienna.
