BA2 armchair, 1945

BA2 armchair by Ernest Race for Race Furniture.

In 1954, Ernest Race was awarded the Gold Medal at the Milan Triennale for his BA3 chair, which was designed 9 years earlier.

The BA3 dining chairs were, for ease of assembly and shipping, made up of seven interchangeable parts. The BA2 armchair is a timber-backed version of the world-renowned BA3, with upholstered armrests.

Initially made from sand-cast aluminium, and later made from die-cast aluminium, the BA3 chair was at the cutting edge of post-war design.
