Howe 40/4 Chair


The famous 40/4 chair designed by David Rowland in 1964 is considered as the first true stacking chair and is the benchmark stack chair for the industry.
Designed originally as a side chair David Rowland through the years also designed other versions of the chair in order to provide a chair for almost any application, and at the same time keeping a uniform design language across the applications.

In addition, the broad palette of finishes (plastic resins, veneers and upholsteries) makes it hard to find an application the 40/4 does not fit.
