Czechia, 1970s

Description:

A pair of bentwood chairs in dark oak, uphoulstered in a pink corderoy fabric, manufactured by Dřevopodnik Holešov in the 1970s, a furniture company based in former Czechoslovakia that continues to operate to this day.

The shapes created by the bentwood frames are highly surprising. This is a result of the front and back legs intermingling on their way to both becoming the backrest support. Although unusual, striking shapes are typical of Mid-Century Czech design.

The roster of Dřevopodnik Holešov boasts many designers, including the renowned trio of Zbyněk Hřivnáč, Jan Bočan and Jan Šrámek. Together, these three designers have made significant contributions to the visual culture of the Czech Republic, leaving a lasting legacy of unique creativity and craftspersonship. Their collaborations with Dřevopodnik Holešov did much to elevate the company's reputation and helped position Czech design on the international stage.
