Friends, I bought three alky chairs but how the hell can you tell th're the real stuff? There are no marks or names on them. They look seventies... tx

There is no market for knock offs yet. These can be used as a single chair or in tandem using connectors made by Castelli & don't just push it against the wall, the back is meant to be seen.

Thx minimoma, do you know anything about the manufacturing process ?
Kind regards

The chair has a steel skeleton/frame wrapped in moulded foam & has a zippered upholstery (but not removable). Don't let the foam deteriorate or dry up, it will lose it's shape & not as easy to repair unless you are familiar with the process or have worked with forming/moulding foam.

Minimoma, how can you stop the foam from deteriorating or drying up? Sprinkeling it? Putting it outside once in a while? Or putting it in a room thats not too warm and that gets ventilated now and then...grtz
