1960s Bill Stephens Style Bentwood Stackable Side Dining Chairs - Set of 6
Mid century Bill Stephens style for Knoll bentwood stackable dining side chairs. Wide square shield back on sculptural bentwood base and legs. Upholstered in a blue rayon blend fabric on seat and back. Great retro yet modernist lines. Very comfortable chairs as the layered bentwood back has a slight flex as you lean back. Flexible yet firm and sturdy. Extremely well constructed, built to last.
Also to point out - One continuous bent hardwood front leg frame + one continuous bent hardwood back leg frame + one continuous bent plywood back and seat frame. Three pieces total. These chairs are truly minimalist, modern, and innovative.
The greats, such as Bill Stephens, Alvar Aalto, and Thonet mastered the art of bending wood beyond the laws of physics. Thin layers of solid wood have been laminated and steamed to create seamless arch that strengthen as they bind. The result is a ground breaking aesthetic appeal.
Please note: We have 36 chairs (total) available for purchase. We are selling them in sets of 6 (6 sets total).
