Roland Rainer, Set of 12 Armchairs Stacking Chairs, 1951

About

A set of twelve stackable chairs designed by Prof. Roland Rainer in 1951 and manufactured by Emil & Alfred Pollak, Austria, in 1950s. Roland Rainer used these chairs for the Viennese city hall "Wiener Stadthalle" in 1956-1962. The chair was named after that as "Stadthallensessel". This is the larger (wider) version with 13 holes in the back which is also called as "13-Loch" or "4-5-4". They are made of solid beech and partly stained plywood. The chairs are in refurbished and very good condition. Documented in: Roland Rainer das Werk des Architekten 1927 - 2003 Möbeldesign der 50er Jahre, Eva B. Ottilinger, p. 133, Böhlau Verlag There are also other Roland Rainer chairs in our stock available (please see the last images for examples). About Roland Rainer: 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. Roland Rainer also designed lounge chairs for the Viennese coffee house "Cafe Ritter". These chairs also were used by Austrian architect Oswald Haerdtl for the "Cafe Prückel" in Vienna.
