Set of 4 Ruspan Chairs


Regular price $0.00 $0.00 Sale

Designed in the Canada in the 1950s by Russell Spanner (1916–1974). Set of 4 lounge/dining chairs including one with arms.* Excellent original condition with new webbing. 

17” x 17” x 33” high

Spanner's designs utilized innovative manufacturing techniques such as curved plywood and non-upholstered, woven-web seating. Many of the designs reused components and shared consistent proportions, which gave his work a characteristic aesthetic. Among his three residential furniture lines (Ruspan Originals, Catalina, and Pasadena) the Lounge Chair with Arms has been described as the "best-known and most desirable" design.*

Spanner was an amateur wrestling champion, and was known to test the strength of his designs by jumping on them and throwing them across the factory floor.[6] (Wikipedia)
