The Howe 40/4 is a design icon of the 20th century. Designed by David Rowland, since its launch in 1964 over 8 million have been made. The elegant lines and excellent ergonomics combine with a superb ability to make use of space with dense storage. Up to 40 chairs stack quickly and neatly into a height of 4 feet, giving the chair its name.
The 40/4 chair is widely used and can be seen in many important churches such as Canterbury, Salisbury and St Paul's Cathedrals.
The Howe 40/4 can used as a side chair, armchair, or a row of chairs, all of which can be stacked and transported easily on different wheeled dollys. There is also a variety of finishes and fabrics from which to choose.
