Egon Eiermann for Wilde+Spieth Dining Chairs

5,800.00

Egon Eiermann SE68 dining chair set-the “Euro DCM”for Wilde+Spieth 1950.
Chrome Base, Piano Black Finish
30.75"ht 19"dp 18.5"w 18"seat ht
Set of six Egon Eiermann Model SE 42 dining chairs designed in 1950 for the German furniture manufacturer Wilde & Spieth.  These more recent examples by the same company have all been custom lacquered with a deep wet piano-black lacquer finish, hand rubbed to a soft luster.
These chairs, an icon of postwar design in Europe, are quite comfortable.
They offer a compelling alternative to the all too common Eames DCM aka "potato chip" chair. as the seat is more upright and provides better support for upright dining. 
Also the seat is narrower (as it was not designed for a certain derriere that shall remain unnamed here) and so there is more room for chairs in tight quarters.  The chairs are also very light when compared with the DCM thanks to hollow steel frame and reduced need for heavier hardware.
Don't get me wrong:  I lived with DCM's in my dining room for years.  I love that chair.  But, sorry, Eiermann's version, while it obviously owes much to Eames's earlier design, is a better sit and so they've replaced the DCMs at my house. 
I should add that the whimsical martian look-what with tall neck and stainless steel eyeball back support fasteners is charming and the lack of glued shock mounts means no need to be concerned with structural failure.
