The garden chair is a good example of Willy Guhl's maxim of achieving the optimum with little effort. Winner of the "Die Gute Form" award from the Swiss Werkbund in 1955, the sculptural garden chair was successful and adapted to the new attitude towards life. The Swiss garden chair was also a much-noticed star on the lawn in front of the Eternithaus at the Berlin Interbau in 1957. Our table is from from a group of patio furniture that came from the household of a Berlin architect and has been on the patio since 1964. This is where the unique age patina comes from.
