Vintage Steel Steno Chairs & Seating
"Bold, industrial and nearly indestructible, the tanker chair was most often confined to utilitarian uses in mid-century Americana. Today its streamlined craftsmanship earns a whole new appreciation amongst collectors and designers who are restoring this well-built classic and updating its look with modern hues. This is what Retro Office is all about.
Since 1919, the tanker chair has been manufactured the same way - made of thick gauge steel that is practically immortal, reliable, and simple; but elegant in any setting. The tanker chair was the largest selling commercial chair in the world and well suited for schools, offices and governmental institutions up until the 1970s.
