A piece of furniture too unconventional for the time of its creation. Edward Homa designed the H106 chair in 1967. It had to be approved by a central committee of the furniture industry – like all other furniture designs to be put into production at that time in Poland. The chair was rejected: it was said to be too expensive to produce, the exotic Afromosia wood was not available in industrial quantities, finally, the design was “not appropriate for the socialist society”, meaning it was seen as too outlandish, too controversial, too “bourgeois”. After this event, Edward Homa devoted himself to academic work as a Professor at the Academy of Arts in Danzig. The H106 chair is also known as the Spider-chair for its regular lines and organic shape and has been brought back to life by Michael Szarko und Przybyrad Paszyn.

“We have set ourselves a clear goal: Reviving unique, forgotten designs by various designers who were ahead of their time.”
