Design Story

From shutters manufacturer to seating manufacturer - so could one succinctly describe the development of the German company Wilde + Spieth. Founded in 1831 as small carpentry business specialising in window shutters one day the architect and designer Egon Eiermann enquired if they could also make chairs. They could. And the subsequent cooperation developed into one of the most successful in post war Europe. In collaboration with Eiermann Wilde + Spieth developed more than 30 chair models made of tubular steel and wood, and models which allowed Egon Eiermann to fulfill his vision of providing furniture for social housing needs. Many of the Wilde + Spieth products have subsequently become established as genuine design classics, including the SE 68, the most successful result of the cooperation. In the chair one sees the perfectionism of the designer. Designed with the aim of combining minimalist forms with a high comfort and convenience the SE 68 succeeds with its ergonomically curved seat and backrest. On account of its reduced form the SE 68 presents itself in every context with an unobtrusive elegance, and can in contemporary colours function as a decorative eye-catcher.
