As part of our iconic furniture range the Roebuck is a testament to British design and the skill and creativity of Ernest Race. Designed in the mid-century as part of the government’s post-war ‘utility scheme’ 1942, the Roebuck and Antelope chairs were very much dictated by the materials available to Race at a time short supply. But thin solid steel rods used in armament manufacture were plentiful and Race certainly put them to good use to create fluid, skilled and almost eccentric designs. Race also excelled in mass production with intelligent improvisation, revolutionising manufacturing techniques to bring these uplifting designs to the mass market. Ideal to demonstrate an appreciation of truly great British design to give a minimal industrial look to cafes, restaurants and break-out spaces.
