Armchair Fn 24 (S 411) (#172)

Willem Hendrik Gispen (1890 - 1981)

professionally restored original, new genuine leather cover with contrasting trimming, original chrome polished, armrests painted with polyurethane to a high gloss

The manufacturer was originally the company Mücke-Melder, Fryštát under the catalog name Fn 24 (under license Thonet according to type S 411), later the production was taken over by the national company Kovona

The armchair with upholstery is based on the original design of the so-called spring chair Marcel Breuer, for which WH Grispen designed the upholstery of the seat and the backrest. After 1933, when the development of tubular furniture began to adapt to the requirements of customers who had already requested upholstered furniture, this type of armchair became a model for many manufacturers, both abroad and especially for Czechoslovak manufacturers. It was produced by all domestic companies (Slezák, Gottwald, Mücke-Melder, Thonet, SAB). In its slightly modified form, it remained the longest-produced model in the production of the company Vichr a spol, later Kovona, which produced it even after the post-war reorganization.

A very popular type, which, for example, the Gottwald company produced under the name Ek 34 or the Slezák company as the K 29 type
