The SP9 chair from 1932 has been attributed as a design from Russian born Serge Chermayeff, who was an English architect and designer. This particular design from PEL was known in the UK to be a commission for the BBC (British Broadcasting Centre).
Art Deco in style, this chair is beautifully ergonomic with large bowed arms, wide seat and back rest. Being a cantilever design, it has a spring to it when is use.
Overall condition is consistent with age. Recently reupholstered in aged tan leather to compliment its heritage with brass studs on the back to finish as a fine detail. As pictured, this chair has corrosion to most of the frame, however this only adds to its antiqueness, honesty and beauty of the design and being nearly a century old. Frame holds strong with new rubber feet added to the base. All defects have been photographed.
