Pair of comfortable dining chairs designed in the 1950s by Oswald Haerdtl in walnut and walnut veneer for TON in Czechoslovakia.
One of the most respected designer-architects of the interwar and postwar period, Oswald Haerdtl was born in Vienna in 1899. He is best known for his early expressions of modernist design, especially those that contributed to Vienna’s famous Kaffeehaus culture, as well as for his collaborations with iconic Austrian architect Josef Hoffmann.
