SE 68 Multi Purpose Chair

Until today Eiermann’s SE 68 is unique in its minimalist design and its seating comfort. A tubular steel frame in conjunction with an “organically” shaped seat and backrest made of moulded wood – the SE 68 was the earliest model in Germany in this combination of materials. To give furniture a “human dimension”, that was Egon Eiermann’s goal – and anyone who has ever sat on his SE 68 knows then at the latest that hardly anyone lived up to this aim as much as the self-confessed perfectionist himself.
