Wood was scarce in 1945 and the British Government encouraged manufacturers to use new materials that were more available – like aluminium – which was plentiful due to the decommissioning of weapons and aircraft. The BA3 was a success, becoming the showpiece of the ‘Britain Can Make It’ exhibition of 1946. One of the first mass-produced, cast aluminium chairs in the world, over 250,000 were made. It won a Gold Medal at the Milan Triennale of 1954 and is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the V&A Museum, London. A stunning chair that has lost none of its modernist looks over the years. The chair can also be covered in Customers Own fabric giving it so many options.
