Set of Six University Chairs by Ward Bennett for Brickel Associates
Designed in 1971 for the Lyndon Johnson Presidential Library, Ward Bennett produced these chairs through Brickell Associates in the 70s and early 80s. The outwardly simple construction has a frame of solid wood, impeccably joined, with an arched backrest and sloping arms that extend into the front legs. The rear legs are close-set and splayed. The feet have metal glides to protect the end grain of the wood from stress. Each chair marked with the Brickell metal tag on the underside.
Condition: Excellent original condition; small signs of age-appropriate wear can be observed.
Dimensions: 22.25" width x 22.75" depth x 33" height; seat height is 18"
