Design: Egon Eiermann, 1949

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

A milestone in the history of modern rattan
furniture took place end of the forties. Through
the activities the co-founder of the newly estab-
lished German Council of Design, »Rat für Form-
gebung«: Egon Eiermann with his lounge Chair
›E10‹ Eiermann created a new typography for
rattan furniture.

The ›E10‹ was not inspired by an old, colonial
style but by a modern way of thinking. By obser-
ving the craftsmanship of the weavers, the design
developed through understanding the construc-
tion processes and capabilities of the material.
The creative process married with the design of
Eiermann’s and Ruf‘s legendary German pavillion
at the EXPO 1956, where dozens of ›E10‹ were
placed for everybody’s use.

Similarly, the design of the rattan stool ›E14‹,
concieved to be light, comfortable, easy to move
and for use anywhere at home, inside or outside.

FAMOUS CLASSICS IN THE
