First designed as a custom chair on behalf of Trinity Wall St church for the new parish hall that makes up the first 5 floors of the podium in the Pelli-Clarke-Pelli designed 76 Trinity Place tower in lower Manhattan, the LH-42 was designed from the outset to be a timeless yet contemporary dining chair and café chair, able to stack up to 8 tall (ply seat, 6 tall if upholstered) and withstand the rigours of every day use in commercial and contract environments such as restaurants, cafés, corporate offices, and high-end office canteens, as well as being ideal for private dining rooms and residential interiors.
Most importantly, it was designed by us to be easy to reconfigure and easy to refurbish from the outset, giving it a potential lifespan of many decades.
Manufactured in European Oak, with the shortest possible distance from forest to mill to workshop, the LH-42 frame offers exceptional strength without the need for stretchers. The LH-42 has been tested to and passed EN 16139:2013 Furniture - strength, safety and durability - Requirements for non-domestic seating..
Available in a range of standard and completely custom stains, the ply and coloured lacquered seat versions stack 8 high. The upholstered seat stacks to a maximum of 6 units high. An LH-42 café chair dolly is available and is recommended for stacking, moving and storing the LH-42 chair.
The ply version of the seat can be finished in any timber stain or veneer, the coloured lacquer in any RAL / Pantone colour, and the upholstered seat in any commercial grade fabric. The LH-42 comes as standard without glides, with felt or LDPE glides being optional.
