The RM58 chair by Roman Modzelewski

The RM58 chair was design by Roman Modzelewski in 1958. It’s probably the most valued and recognized chair designed during communism in Poland. Le Corbusier was so astonished he wanted produce it in France. However this plan was not implemented.

Over the last years the RM58 has been making an international career. Zaha Hadid included this chair in an exhibition about designs of the 20th century. It was presented among the works of Jaime Hayon, George Nelson, Alvar Aalto and Eero Arnio. RM58 was also purchased by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and displayed in the „Cold War Modern: Design. 1845-1970” exhibition.
