Furniture Series Type 4
At first glance, you’ll think what a unique but archaic-looking furniture construction. On closer inspection, you’ll realize TYPE4 is a remarkable product type with interesting origins. In fact, this type of furniture has been in production since the last years of the 19th century as one of the first furniture models for private gardens. The chair of the series was probably one of the first chairs for outdoor use that was sold in large quantities. After all, its production numbers rose in 1906 above the target mark of 50,000 pieces. Both table and chair have a special feature: a “knot construction”. The manufacturer of yore coined the name for the overlapping horizontal and vertical elements. What is striking about the vertical elements is their club-like design: They are reinforced by employing more material at the structurally relevant points. Another eye-catcher is the unusual construction that the manufacturer has chosen to attach the backrest to the chair’s seat. At this juncture, over-long struts – screwed at two points – reach down to an extend near the middle-length of the rear chair legs. Originally, the manufacturer constructed the pieces from beech wood. We offer the furniture in acacia, certainly the most weatherproof European wood. We have the surfaces oiled. Therefore, you can easily refinish them with oil, although treating is not necessary to maintain the surfaces’ weather resistance. The natural finish allows the wood to develop a silver-grey patina.
