Vintage teak armchair | Getama GE88
Stylish and comfortable armchair with afromosia teak frame and sprung cushions.
The chair has been completely restored and re-upholstered with a soft grey colour fabric from GABRIEL, type FAME
The chair offers excellent seating in a light and airy design which is heavily inspired by the chairs designed by Hans Wegner for Getama.
It is this inspiration which landed GETAMA in hot water with Hans Wegner as he felt the chair borrowed too much from his design.
See model GE233
The GE88 armchair was designed by Aage Pedersen the former director of GETAMA.
He was reprimanded in very strong words by Wegner and told that this production was to cease if the co-operation between them was to continue!
