Garden Egg Chair by Peter Ghyczy for VEB Synthese Werk East Germany, 1960s

About

The garden egg chair was designed by Peter Ghyczy in 1968. It was manufactured by Reuter Products. The chair was designed for both indoor and outdoor use, although as a design icon and collectable it is rarely used outdoors. The chair lid lifts and closes, and when closed is theoretically waterproof. Elastogran/Reuter produced the plastic polyurethane. Ghyczy's job was to start a design centre in order to show industrial customers polyurethane's potential. The garden egg chair is one of the first chairs made with polyurethane. The chair was produced by the East German company VEB-Synthese-Werk.
