Ernest Race BA23 chairs

Ernest Race Set of five BA23 aluminium chairs. Circa 1945-64.

The BA23 was one of the first mass-produced, cast aluminium chairs in the world – Over 250,000 were manufactured.
Wood was scarce in 1945 and the British Government encouraged manufacturers to use new materials that were more available – like aluminium – which was plentiful due to the decommissioning of weapons and aircraft. It was an immediate success, becoming the showpiece of the ‘Britain Can Make It’ exhibition of 1946.

The chairs are in original condition with definite signs of age and use.
