Sándor Borz Kováts’s armchair, from around 1969, can be seen for one more week in our ’artwork of the month’ display case. 

The young deceased Sándor Borz Kováts (1940–1973) was one of the most talented Hungarian designers of the second half of the twentieth century. However most of his furniture designs have never been mass-produced, they exist only as prototypes. Considering its construction and form the red armchair, executed by Borz himself, is an outstanding work.. It is made of moulded fibreglass, with a technology that is often used for boat building. Although the chair does not follow any particular model, it evokes the spirit of contemporary Italian design.
