The school chair from then, in the colors of today
The S16 from Galvanitas is the school chair of the 60s. He was in just about every school in the Netherlands. And that went remarkably well. Originally equipped with PAG wooden seat and back. But now given a new look by also releasing an upholstered version. Due to its minimalist design and industrial look, the chair is extremely popular today. The S16 from Galvanitas is without a doubt a classic and fits perfectly into the current interior trends.
A special design chair
The chair was designed and produced by Galvanitas in Oosterhout in the late 1950s and early 1960s. They opted for a design with the so typical compass legs. Instead of the usual tube construction, the designer opted for a frame made of pressed sheet steel. A very solid and at the same time revolutionary design for the time. Wim Rietveld, one of the pioneers of industrial design in the Netherlands, described the furniture as functional: 'well-shaped, sturdy, usable and inexpensive'.
A chair made for intensive use
The S16 was especially intended for intensive use in public buildings, such as schools, institutions and canteens. To increase this seating comfort and bring it into your home, we have also designed an upholstered version.
