BA2 arm 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 arm chair is a timber-backed version of the world renowned BA3, with upholstered arm rests.

Frame in a painted or polished finish. Seat back in oak veneer. Available with seat and armrests upholstered in fabrics of the collection.
