BA2 side chair by Ernest Race for Race Furniture.

In 1954, Ernest Race was awarded the Gold Medal at the Milan Triennale for his BA3 chair, which was designed 9 years earlier.

The BA3 dining chairs were, for ease of assembly and shipping, made up of seven interchangeable parts.

Initially made from sand-cast aluminium, and later made from die-cast aluminium, the BA3 chair was at the cutting edge of post-war design.

The BA2 side chair is a timber-backed version of the world renowned BA3.

Aluminiumn frame in a polished or clear lacquer finish or painted black or white. Available with seat upholstered in fabrics of the collection. Other painted frame colours are available for an additional charge and minimum order quantity, enquire for details.
