Commissioned by Canteen for their group of restaurants. This design can be seen as an evolution of the once ubiquitous post-war Utility Chair, still a familiar sight in the UK today. Klaus & Carpenter managed to reduce the chair to three main components. The powder-coated frame is made from one continuous piece of bent tube. Hidden fixings join it neatly to the plywood seat and back. Along the way they subtly updated the look of the classic archetype. The result is light weight, stackable and versatile: the Canteen Utility Chair. 2009. VG&P.
