Committed to expert craftsmanship, quality materials and sustainability, PLEASE WAIT to be SEATED crafts each design to a standard to ensure its treasured for years to come. Using the highest quality woods, leathers and fabrics, PLEASE WAIT to be SEATED asks itself if the design can, “in its entirety, become a long-lasting object we someday can pass on to our children?” before releasing it.
Collaborating with both renowned and emerging designers in search of innovative designs, PLEASE WAIT to be SEATED showcase pieces by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Laura Bilde and Faye Toogood. Re-releasing classic designs from iconic Bauhaus designers such as Herbert Hirche and Egon Eiermann, PLEASE WAIT to be SEATED is contributing towards the continued success of some of the world’s most iconic furniture designs, such as the S197R Swivel Office Chair and the SE42 Dining Chair.
SE42 Dining Chair
Designed by the German architect Egon Eiermann in 1949, the SE42 Dining Chair is expertly crafted by PLEASE WAIT to be SEATED.
Stripping design back to its bare elements, the chair features a beautifully grained natural beech seat resting on three legs in the same material.
Showcasing elegant curves and an organically-shaped seat, the SE42 Chair is a timeless design classic that is bound to suit any dining space.
One of Germany’s most renowned architects and designers, Egon Eiermann had a simple, minimalistic approach to design. Inspired by architects such as Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius, his unique designs are as functional as they are beautiful.
