About

German draftsman's chair by Polstergleich, circa 1930s - Height adjustable - Sprung seat and backrest - Beech legs, seat and backrest - Bakelite backrest knob with makers mark - German, 1930s - Measures: 40cm wide x 48cm deep - Seat height range 50cm - 60cm Margarete Klöber, Polstergleich Polstergleich owes its origin to the pioneering spirit of Margarete Klöber in the 1930s. Margarete Klöber founded her health chair factory in 1935 with the idea of bringing healthy sitting to the offices. Margarete Klöber was a secretary and sat on an uncomfortable wooden stool. She thought, "There must be a better solution than this stool." And so she developed her first chair, with the "freedom to sit better". It combined the still young technology of bentwood processing with the comfort of an armchair. With it's sprung seat and back rest it was designed to simulate the comfort of an upholstered chair - upholstery was not common in the office at the time. This ingenious idea was an innovation in the working world at the time. Condition report The chair has been waxed and polished and shows very few signs of cosmetic wear.
