In good vintage condition, two rare high barstools made of steel with a dark green plywood seat. A design by furniture designers and architects Piet Hein (1905–1996) and Bruno Mathsson (1907–1988) for manufacturer Fritz Hansen.
One is marked at the bottom with the silver label and with the official Fritz Hansen hallmark in the plywood ('FH - MADE IN DENMARK'); the other stool is without the silver paper label.
These vintage barstools are from November 1969 and the design is based on the human collarbone. The copyright is attributed to the gentlemen Piet Hein and Bruno Mathsson, but both the idea and the development came from Fritz Hansen himself.
This barstool was available in three models:
- Model 9511: height 64 cm (upholstered seat in fabric or leather)
- Model 9513: height 80 cm (upholstered seat in fabric or leather)
- Stool after the model 3170 by Arne Jacobsen: height 78 cm x diameter 33 cm (plywood seat)
The model of the barstools we're offering here (with a plywood seat, the same seat as the model 3170 stool by Arne Jacobsen) has only been in production for a few years.
On the Scandinavian furniture fair in 1971 a matching high and round table was exhibited together with 'model 9511', which in the end did not get into production, see last picture.
The high model with fabric of leather upholstery remained in Fritz Hansen's collection till 1998. Since 2006 Hugo Piet Hein, one of the sons from his last marriage, took the stools in production somewhere else.
** Credits: thanks to the main office of Fritz Hansen in Denmark, which offered all information about this particular bar stool. **
Condition in accordance with their age and use, such as small scratches and stains, worn spots, and one stool with somewhat more paint damages on the plywood seat than the other one, see the close-up photos. The steel frame shows chrome oxidation and corrosion.
Please have a good look at the photos for a correct impression of the offered lot.
## Will be packaged well and shipped by registered post in two large, separate parcels (the total shipping costs are for the two parcels together).
Only within the Netherlands and Europe, ***only EU member states***, so no shipping to, for example, Norway, Switzerland and the Canary Islands. Shipping outside of Europe is not possible since the parcels are too large and thereby too expensive to transport to countries that fall under worldwide shipments. ##
