All the hard work has been done, just sit back and relax

These were designed by Fred Lowen and produced after his SC55 and SC58 chairs but these have been pared back even further to more of a minimalist profile. There is only the mahogany staple shape frame visible with a steel structural frame and springs concealed within the upholstery.

Restoration of these chairs involved disassembling the mahogany frames, stripping old varnish, sanding, re gluing together with two pot epoxy, finishing with 6 coats of Danish oil lightly buffing between coats. The upholstery is James Dunlop, Maya-Haze. A light duck egg blue / silver (& twice the price of a typical Warwick fabric) which looks stunning against the finished mahogany frames. The foam to base and back is also new high density foam.

Upholstery done by Tony at Bungalow upholstery.

These chairs are sold 'in trade' and a GST receipt can be provided. They can be viewed at Space + Style showroom in Warkworth.
