SE 40 Swivel Chair

The working chair SE 40 came to trade in 1952. It continued the row of Eiermann’s furniture. The steel frame with the middle column is height adjustable. Eiermann decided to take the same seat and backrest like for the SE 42. This had production-economic and ergonomic reasons.

Design: Egon Eiermann, 1949
