Three left in stock at the moment. Beautifully made and truly functional ! These chairs seem only to have been used indoors so they are in great condition with only slight signs of use. Rubber feet have been replaced with new original Vitra stock.
The choice of material, Swiss Aluminium, was one of the countries most important exports at the time so Hans Coray designed the “Landi chair” as the outdoor chair for the Swiss National Exhibition in 1939. These are made by the original manufacturer: MEWA in Switzerland; probably from the 1960s.
Charles and Ray Eames knew of the Landi Chair and appreciated its innovative characteristics such as being weatherproof. So they used them in the garden of their home in Pacific Palisades.
The holes not only allow rain water to drain, but also give extra rigidity to the shell, providing an element of transparency which emphasises the extreme lightness of the chair. It weighs only 3 kilograms.
