Norfolk, UK - A large number of Stendig chairs are being sold at Saturday's 535 lot modern design sale at Gaze's in Diss. These chromed steel X framed chairs were designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara and are being sold as made in the 1970s, and marked for the town of manufacture Merua Finland. Tapiovaara graduated in interior design in 1937 and gained attention for the chairs he designed for the student union building in Helsinki, known as Domus chairs, in 1946. The stack chairs are still being made by Artek in a matt black steel, and known as Kiki.

Gaze sponsors the Salvo Fair, and we expect Carl Willows to be in attendance (probably in the Salvo tent) to discuss future consignments with the trade and public, and usually with a menageria of miscellania from Gaze's forthcoming architectural salvage sale.
