This English SP4 Chair by Oliver Percy Bernard has a complicated pedigree. It is a descendant of a similar chair with a thinner seat designed in 1928 by Wassily and Hands Luckhardt and used in their home on the Ruppenhorn. The Luckhardt chair was first produced by Desta (Deutsche Stahlmobel), a company founded by Anton Lorenz in 1929. When Desta was liquidated in 1933, all the designs were sold to Thonet who sold this model as SS33. A variation of this model with a single rod in the back (attributed to Lorenz) was also sold by Desta and, then, by Thonet.
This present English SP4 Chair is a reworking of the Luckhardts' chair by Oliver Percy Bernard during his short association (1931-1933) with Pel Ltd., London (SP4). In 1982 it was reintroduced by Sheridan Coakley as part of his collection of classics.
