SE 68 MULTI PURPOSE CHAIR by WILDE&SPIETH / EGON EIERMANN

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.

Design: Egon Eiermann, 1951

Egon Eiermann was an important German architect during the 1950s and 1960s. Typical for his style is the subtle way he continued the functionalism from his time. He was always looking for a balance between the concept and the practical necessities of each design.
Eiermann collaborated with WILDE + SPIETH for the production of shutters for some of his buildings. One day in 1948 he asked them a simple question: can you make chairs as well?
From this moment a successful collaboration was born: in the years to come they created some iconic models together.
