A Raphael Raffel Space Age Plastic Tub Chair Atomic Pod Mid-Century 1970s VTG

1,999.00

Offered is a rare 1970s plastic tub chair designed by Raphael Raffel (FRENCH, 1912-2000).  Unmarked, but coming from a wealthy local estate that was professionally decorated in the 1970s by a NYC decorator.  This example is all original and in overall good condition.  Rare find.  Very comfortable.

Condition:  Sturdy and well made. The padding has shifted a bit over time and is low in some areas.  This does not effect the comfort, but does make it appear a bit flat in places.  General wear to the plastic shell, which has yellowed slightly over time.  Normal amounts of scratches / scuffs.  General wear to the plastic upholstery.  

Similar chairs are on the market currently, but considerably more expensive.
  
Measurements:
26 1/2" H x 29" W x 28" D x 15 1/2" Seat height
