The folding garden chair No. 2, which is still known today as a classic beer garden chair, is a particular bestseller.
In the 1920s, a close collaboration developed with the designers of the Bauhaus, many of whose designs were made in Stendal: e.g., shows L&C Arnold at the Werkbund exhibition "Die Wohnung" in Stuttgart in 1927, a device developed by Mart Stam and manufactured by Arnold, including the first chair without back legs (cantilever chair).
