This experimental tubular steel chair dates from the early days of steel furniture in Berlin. Apparently inspired by the furniture of the Luckhardt brothers for DESTA (Berlin until 1931), this furniture was probably created a little later. The pipe has the necessary weight for cold drawn, resilient steel pipe and has been processed and galvanized with great effort. The characteristic of the polished pipes, which were first nickel-plated, copper-plated and then chrome-plated, is also found in THONET or MAUSER furniture. The pipe connections are riveted. The 90-year-old previous owner confirmed on request that the chair came from Berlin.
