In the 1950s, moulded plywood was a driver of innovation; a love of organic design inspired designers. Furniture like the S 661 chair designed by Günter Eberle brought lightness and life into interior spaces. The malleable design, with its elegantly curved seat shell made of moulded plywood, was awarded a silver medal at the Triennale design exhibition in Milan in 1954, and also went on to win the iF Product Design Award in the same year. Thanks to its versatility and its efficient use of resources, the S 661 is as contemporary today as it was back then, and is now undergoing a revival with a new version available in beech, oak or walnut with a sleek tubular steel frame.
