  • Garth Chester Bent Plywood Curvesse Chair

    Lot 840: Garth Chester (1916–1968) . In 1944 Chester pioneered the cantilevered Curvesse chair. It was made from four sheets of 3/16th plywood pressed together to make a single form, with a stable base from two solid runners. The pivotal moment in their manufacture came when the press was closed – if there were no loud cracking noises the makers knew they had succeeded. The failure rate was about one in five, and about 80 of the chairs were sold. H. 77cm, W. 60.5cm.
