Wilde+Spieth SE 68 Multi Purpose Chair
Until today Eiermann’s SE 68 is unique in its minimalist design and its seating comfort. A tubular steel frame in conjunction with an “organically” shaped seat and backrest made of moulded wood – the SE 68 was the earliest model in Germany in this combination of materials. To give furniture a “human dimension”, that was Egon Eiermann’s goal – and anyone who has ever sat on his SE 68 knows then at the latest that hardly anyone lived up to this aim as much as the self-confessed perfectionist himself. Design: Egon Eiermann, 1951
Frame 4-legged tubular steel frame, chrome plated with plastic glides. Ø 18 × 2 mm.
Seat and backrest Moulded seat and backrest of laminated wood veneer.
Backrest support of tubular steel Ø 18 × 2 mm.

<p>Egon Eiermann consistently represented the ideas of functionalism, he understood the interplay of objectivity and lightness, and thus shaped the image of the young Federal Republic of Germany over a period of more than two decades. <br /><br />It is particularly thanks to his work as a designer that Germany was able to successfully build on its tradition of the Werkbund and the Bauhaus internationally. His chairs are now classics and available under the Wilde + Spieth brand.</p>
