Santa Lucia Rattanchair by Lampert
Santa Lucia Rattanchair
How do you design a modern restaurant that feels comfortable and unpretentious? The Bauhaus pupil and later sole employee of Mies van der Rohe until 1934, Herbert Hirche, succeeded in this difficult task.
Hirche was Professor at the Academy of Art in Stuttgart when the ‘Hirche Team’ designed the well known restaurant “Santa Lucia”. The restaurant was originally designed in 1957 and remodelled in 1969, when the Santa Lucia chair was introduced.
The “Santa Lucia” chair has nothing of the romantic Finca style or colonial backgrounds of the traditional rattan furniture. It is one of the rare modern architectural designs using rattan. The “Santa Lucia” can be used as dining or kitchen chair, at home or in cafe´s or retaurants. What looks like the backrest performs as an armrest, it is comfortable and stackable. It is a design of which you will not get tired of and after more than 30 years it is proven to be timeless.
Afraid of rattan? If one of the strings ever brakes, any basket weaver can repair the chair.
Since 2009 the chair is also available in weather resistant and easy to clean polyethylen fiber.
