Jindrich Halabala designed the dining chair officially listed as model H-214. These chairs were immediately popular and were nicknamed ‘lollipop chair’ thanks to the shape of the backrests. The H-214 chairs were produced by UP Brno since the 1930s and were in production in different fabrics and with different wood finishes and colours until the late 1950’s. However to find the H-214 chair with these armrests is very special. It is unknown if this model was a limited edition, a bespoke project for a private client or a prototype. The size of the chair is also slightly bigger and more comfortable to sit on compared to the standard H-214 model. The chair is made of oak and the curved armrests are made of beech wood. This piece has been recently completely refurbished to its former glory. Our experienced craftsman has carried the restoration to the highest standard, using French polishing technique and Shellac varnish to hand finish the entire piece. The damaged fabric has been replaced by a new one. the internal upholstery of the seating has been repaired according to the original. The springs have been straighten and the cushion has been filled with African grass, as was used at the time.
