Design: Herbert Hirche, 1957

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

For Herbert Hirche’s 100th birthday, we had a look
around his home, hoping to find some hidden trea-
sure. His daughter Conny still lives in his house to-
day. And among all the beautiful furniture from the
1950s and 60s, we struck it rich!

Suddenly the prototype of a 1957 chair (originally
designed for the famous “Interbau 1956” exhibition
in Berlin) appeared before us, looking rather worn
but nonetheless rendering us speechless. Or, to
put it more precisely: we were thrilled and immedi-
ately decided to include the chair in our collection.
And voilà! The H 57 chair, a design in the tradition
of Saarinen and Eames, yet very much an inde-
pendent character. And utterly comfortable!

The chair is available with the original green cover,
a velvety velour, which we also offer in charcoal
and dark brown. For connoisseurs, it is also avail-
able with a suede cover of the grade used in
gloves and jackets. A wonderfully tactile suede
split leather that quickly develops a patina, just
like a suede jacket. You can also get the chair
with a cover of your choice as long as the fabric
has the right stress and tensile properties.

A REDISCOVERED TREASURE
