BA2 Special Edition Chairs
Four rare BA2 chairs. Only 90 Re-worked ones exist.
Celebrating the 70th anniversary of the BA2—a simple metal-frame chair with a wood backrest designed by Ernest Race in 1945 for the British manufacturer Race Furniture-90 of the U.K.’s leading artists, designers, and architects had been invited in 2015 to reinterpret the iconic seat as part of a creative project called Re-Work It.
From Tom Dixon, Paul Smith, Alice Temperley, and Rose Uniacke to Daniel Chadwick, David Chipperfield, and Barber Osgerby, the designers had lent their unique creative twist to the BA2, and all 90 of the redesigned chairs had been suspended from the ceiling in Selfridges’ main atrium in London, in a rather spectacular display curated by Fair & Co. The special editions were auctioned off via Paddle 8 auction House with all proceeds having benefited the Art Room, a charity that provides art-led therapy for children.
This set of rare chairs which also passed through Bonhams at one point were designed by the following:
Kassandra Isaacson (Sitting Pretty for the Art Room
Hugo Dalton (Tresco Chair)
Rose Russell (Roman Holiday)
Miranda Donovan (The Thinkers Chair)
Price is for the set of 4.
Wear and condition is commensurate with age and use.
