Canteen Utility Chair

Designed by Ed Carpenter & André Klauser for Very Good & Proper

Available as standard in a choice of 4 wood finishes with 11 colour options for the frame, VG&P’s Canteen Utility Chair is the pefect choice to add colour and quality to any interior project. Our design is inspired by the classic post-war British school chair. The simple, light-weight and stackable design retains the look and feel of the original, whilst simultaneously updating both the aesthetic and production methods. The precision bent tubular steel frame is a continuous piece and free from unsightly welds. The frame combines with a 12mm thick plywood seat and back to create a visually light, yet robust design.
