SLL18 is a reissue of a chair designed in 1958 by the Belgian modernist architect Léon Stynen. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of this design, a polypropylene version has been added to the SL58 collection.
Léon Stynen (1899-1990) - son of a sculptor and decorative artist - studied architecture at the departement of architecture in Antwerpen Academy. The theoretical basis of Stynen's work is no doubt in keeping with Le Corbusier ideas. Stynen's oeuvre is wide-ranging and multi-faceted. The casinos built for Knokke and Chaudfontaine (1928) reflect his predilection for the new aesthetics of modernism, which at the time were not yet mainstream. The Royal Conservatory of Music in Antwerp and the Singel International Art Center is one of Stynen's last achievements.
