Background Info and Provenance
(Written in 2019. This chair SOLD through iNVISeDGE for $125 back in 2003.)
I sold this chair way back when I was first starting out in this business (2003). I had no idea of the maker back then or what I was doing! I sold it for only $125- love this chair! I remember coming across this design about 5 years ago whilst researching something else and if I remember rightly the chair was identified as being by Parker Knoll of the UK. I did a Search of Parker Knoll Google Images just then and couldn’t find any photos of this chair worldwide. It’s extremely RARE. It takes cues from the highly-regarded SC55 by FLER (Fred Lowen Ernst Roddeck) or was it the other way around? Lowen could well have “borrowed” the idea from Parker Knoll. He did borrow a few of his ideas from overseas. The SC55 is quite a lot different to this design though- just the same concept. These days I’d price this chair at a lot more (maybe around $600- the upholstery had a bit of wear)- it’s hard to value something like this because I can’t find any others online at the moment and there’s no need to try that hard anyway- this chair is long sold and I may never get another one!
