Extraordinary “Montreal” chairs designed by Otto Frei in stained beech and leather from 1967. The German architect Otto Frei rose to prominence in 1967 when he was commissioned to design the German pavilion at the world expo in Montreal Canada. He designed and learned how to build tents with minimal resources in Chartres and continued and improved his craft throughout his career. It’s not at all hard to see the similarities between the architectural designs by Frei when we take a closer look at these chairs. The tapered and slender legs made of stained beech elegantly held up the saddle leather of the backrest. The frame is reinforced with visible metal plates that result in a very subtle detail that is not immediately visible from a distance. Under the chair, we see three high-quality sturdy straps spanning the brown thick leather over the seating. When watching the chair from the side you will notice a slight upwards line of the frame towards the beginning of the seat. This not only makes for better comfort but also gives this design an edge. The wear of this chair is consistent with age and use. For instance, the leather has few signs and the wooden frames show little marks and scratches. Overall a very special pair of chairs suffering very little aging along the way.

I recently bought some amazing Artwork from AtKris Studio online. The whole experience was amazing. The transaction was amazingly efficient. The crating and shipping of the artwork to the United States from the Netherlands could not have gone smoother and the customer service was spot on!!  Krista was amazing and I highly recommend AtKris Studio!
