DESCRIPTION
A very rare flamingo chair by Ernest Race for Race furniture.Designed in 1957 and wining the Design Centre award 1959.This chair is still as striking today as it was 60 years ago.

Probably the most original and influential British furniture designer, manufacturer and retailer of the twentieth century.

Seeking a compromise between English traditional and Swedish modern, Race`s furniture was characteristically light and easy to handle, with clean lines and thin splayed legs. His BA chair of 1945 and the renowned steel rod `Antelope` chair for the 1951 Festival of Britain won gold and silver medals respectively at the prestigious 10th Milan Triennale in 1954. These were followed by the `Flamingo` easy-chair (1959) and the `Sheppey` settee and chair (1963). The latter was comfortable and ingenious in its design, being assembled from a set of interchangeable, mass-produced components.

In his later years, from 1961 until his death in 1964, Race was a consultant furniture designer for Cintique and Isokon furniture, designing the attractive Penguin Mark 2 Donkey bookcase in 1963.

Race is known principally for his chairs, designed in the Contemporary style after the Second World War
