Even this smaller version of the steel-tube chair Comeback is distinguished by its inelaborate and functional appearance and cannot help but impress you with its stability and robustness when being used by children. Its upright design practically invites you to climb on it, stand it on its head and generally just play with it. Oh, and incidentally, you can also sit very comfortably on it without worrying about it falling over!
The furniture manufacturer L&C Stendal has a long tradition in Germany. In 1889 Louis Arnold, an iron dealer, and his son Carl founded the iron furniture factory L.&C. Arnold in Stendal which, beginning in 1926, specialized in the production of garden furniture and bed frames and developed into the leading steel tube manufacturer in Europe. The foldable garden chair No. 2 was an especially popular best seller, one which even today is considered a true classic among beer garden chairs. In 1927 L.&C. Arnold displayed at the Werkbund (Work Federation) Exhibition “The Domicile” in Stuttgart a “device” designed by Mart Stam and manufactured by Arnold: the first chair without hind legs (cantilever chair). A close relationship developed in those years between Stendal and the designers from the Bauhaus School with the result that many of those designs were produced by Stendal. After 1945 the factory in Stendal was called “VEB STIMA”; it manufactured chairs, tables and beds for the DDR market and for export. After Germany reunited, the company concentrated more and more on the production of Bauhaus furniture classics and expanded that program with the “Stendal Collection” in which re-editions from the 1950´s as well as new designs were manufactured with the same demands for quality and consistent design that had always been its hallmark.
