General Information

The Frankfurt Kitchen Chair.

It's a rugged original and a comfortable, indestructible chair. In addition to its exceptional seating comfort, the so-called Frankfurt Kitchen Chair can be used in many contexts. There is hardly any table or place where it won't fit in, in the dining area or as a chair that matter-of-factly takes its place in the café. We like especially the chair's uncapricious design and formal characteristics. It is indeed a textbook example for the species, with its straight square front legs and slightly bent rear legs, the curved back support, and the almost flat seat with a slight indentation. Add to that the overall solid construction and a clever wood joint connecting the front part of the seat frame with the front legs, which obviates an additional cross strut between the chair legs. The seat and back support are made of beech plywood; the legs and frame made of solid beech. This chair design was developed at the beginning of the 1930s as standard seating for individual private use as well as in public spaces, the chairs serving for many years in schools, agencies and other public buildings. MAGAZIN revived the production of the chairs in the 1980s, and since its material and shape reminded us of the "Frankfurt Kitchen" (designed in 1926 by Austrian architect Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky for architect Ernst May's social housing project in Frankfurt am Main), we dubbed it the Frankfurt Kitchen Chair. We have ours made according to the specifications from the 1930s in a broader and somewhat higher version with the back support made of beech plywood.
