1950’s French Luterma Blonde Bentwood Dining Chair – Bar Chair

Description

1950’s French Luterma Blonde Bentwood Dining Chair – Bar Chair. The process of steam bending beech to create elegant chairs was discovered and developed by Thonet, but when its patents expired in 1869 many companies including Luterma launched production. Luterma was one of the brands marketed by Estonian factory A.M. Luther which was founded in the late 19th Century in Tallinn. Luthers production was principally in Estonia but they also had factories in France for local market production. At the time of the Bauhaus movement Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer worked with the factory to develop various models. The chair is a rarely seen high model, a classic farmhouse shape. A classic farmhouse style chair in a clean and bleached blonde beech wood. Large comfortable bent back supports combine with elegant legs. The chair has passed through our workshop where it has been cleaned and rejuvenated. Seat Height 47cm
