Corner back chair Alte Nikolaischule
The unusual design has a lot going for it: the sitting posture is automatically relaxed and the recessed armrests allow you to get close to the dining or desk top. The chair is made by the Rabenau chairmakers, who used it to furnish the "Alte Nikolaischule" in Leipzig in 1910 and 1994. For private use, it is only available from us.
The old, at first glance disconcerting design has a lot going for it: the sitting posture is automatically relaxed, at the dining or desk the recessed armrests allow you to get very close to the plate, and as a solitaire full of character it attracts attention.
Rabenau. The chairmaking town
Rabenau's chairmaking tradition is almost 400 years old. The many special skills of Rabenau's chairmakers that have grown over that time have survived industrialization, and they have survived the Volkseigentum and the Federal Republic's Vocational Training Ordinance unscathed. Today, 16 factories work under the umbrella of a cooperative. They manufacture chairs and tables in a manner committed to the best traditions of the trade. What the Rabenauer chairmakers can do, they show especially in the faithful reproduction of historical models.
The Nikolai furniture
In 1910, the Rabenauer supplied the following seating furniture and tables to equip the four hundred year old "Old Nikolai School" at the Nikolaikirchhof in Leipzig. For the reopening of the renovated building as a cultural center in 1994, the furniture was built a second time in Rabenau. For "private use" they are only available from us.
The frames and seat frames of the Rabenau furniture are made of solid beech wood, which is stained and varnished. The wood joints are tapped and cold glued. The seat frames of the seating furniture are mitered and the edges are profile milled; typical leg shape with rod milling.
The seats: Leather or wicker
The seating surfaces are either leather seats or wickerwork:
- The leather seats consist of a plywood base, which is padded with upholstery wadding; black cowhide is fixed on it with decorative nails.
- For the wickerwork seating surfaces, the split, stained peddigree is woven three times by hand through holes in the chair fold.
In cooperation with the Rabenau chair makers, we offer to refurbish older models of chairs of this type. You will receive an offer on request, the duration of the restoration depends on the effort.
