Beautiful set of 'string chairs' designed by Jacques Gillion in 1953 and unveiled at the Milan Triennial ( a major art and design exhibition ) in 1954. One of the most iconic pieces of Canadian Modern design, these chairs are surprisingly sturdy and comfortable despite their minimal appearance. These chairs have been restored, there were chips and damage to the teak veneer in many places that has been fixed, the original parachute cord was damaged beyond salvage, so it was replaced with appropriate military surplus para cord. Seat height is 18"
20.5" wide x 23" deep x 32.5" tall
