1937 Kem Weber Airline Chair
This chair was produced briefly from 1934-1939 with about 300 to 400 made. 300 where made for the Walt Disney Studio offices designed by Kem Weber himself. Original Kem Weber Airline Club Chair is an iconic of both the 1930s and Modernism. These chairs were produced in limited numbers between 1934 -1935for the offices at Walt Disney studios were Weber worked as architect and designer.
Weber’s most famous work is probably the “Airline” chair of 1934-1939, which exemplified the clean, streamlined style of the age, with its seat supported by a cantilevered frame reminiscent of wooden aircraft components. Although it was both a practical, stylish and economical to construct and ship, the Airline chair failed to find a volume manufacturer, and most surviving examples come from the batch of 300 made for the Walt Disney Studios, largely by craftsmen rather than machines. Weber is also noted for being the main architect of the Walt Disney Studios complex in Burbank, California. source:http://www.lamoderninla.com
